INDIANAPOLIS -- A mother of three is the lucky one after she was shot by her ex-boyfriend, she says.

After she was shot in April, Sarah McKinney now relies on a walker to get around.

McKinney battles constant pain and a constant fear that her worst nightmare isn't over yet.

"He came in the kitchen and he didn't say anything," McKinney said. "He just raised the gun. I tried to run and he just started firing."

She was hit multiple times while inside a Courtyard Mariott Hotel off Southport Crossings Drive.

Falling to the ground, McKinney says she looked up and locked eyes with the shooter -- the father of her three children.

"I asked him I just said, 'Please babe no,' and then he walked out," she said.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says Paul Thompson went on to knock on Darryl Nichols' door, near Carson Drive, shooting him too.

Thompson was arrested in Illinois a short time later. But McKinney says her pain could have been prevented.

"They were supposed to arrest him the day before he shot me," McKinney said.

Nearly a month later, she is still working to recover both mentally and physically.

"Even if there are still good times and he doesn't beat you ever single day :cool:and he doesn't verbally hurt you every single day it doesn't matter, they're still capable of doing something like this," she said.

Despite it all -- the pain and the fear -- she says she still feels blessed.:confused:
