NORTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Hospital officials tell News 4 the girl who was injured during a quadruple shooting on Thursday is still listed in critical condition. 

Saturday, a family member told News 4 Deniya Irving had died of the injuries sustained during the shooting, which killed three other people. The next day, a different family member said the girl was brain dead at the hospital. 

On Sunday, the hospital confirmed the 7-year-old is still alive and remains in critical condition. Normally, hospitals do not acknowledge they have children of violence in their facility but made an exception, in this case, to rule out any confusion on her condition. 

Four people were shot on Beacon Avenue and Lillian Avenue in North City, including her mother and father who were killed in the shooting. 

The shooting was the first of three quadruple shootings in a 4-day time span. 

Jessica Garth, 24, of Webster Groves was rushed to a hospital in critical condition immediately following the shooting. Garth later died of her injuries. Two men,27-year-old Derrick Irving of the 6000 block of Horton and Julian Hayes, 37, of the 3300 block of Minnesota, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said they believe the victims were inside a vehicle with a 5-year-old when the shooting occurred just before 4 p.m. The 5-year-old was not injured during the shooting.

"We know that folks ou there know something, we need help, this is wrong in every way, and not just because child involved," said St. Louis Police Captain, Mary Warnecke. 

Police have not released any more details regarding the suspects.
