Tosha Yost can't believe her niece is fighting for her life after suffering a gunshot wound.

State police said 20-year-old Salicia Yost of Milton was found inside a vehicle along Irish Valley Road in Shamokin Township on Saturday. Salicia works with her aunt at this convenience store in Lewisburg.

Tosha said her niece was shot in the head. She wants to visit her in the hospital, but only Salicia's parents are able to see her right now.

Regular customers are coming into the store, asking about Salicia's condition.

Tosha said her niece has a lot of friends, and she can't understand how something like this could happen. She hopes the person responsible is brought to justice.

Salicia remains in critical condition at an area hospital. Authorities have not released any other details surrounding the ongoing investigation.
