BREMERTON -- A picture of the recovering 8-year-old accidentally shot in her Bremerton classroom has been Photoshopped into her team basketball photo.

Doctors at Harborview Medical Center reported Amina Bowman was taken off a respirator and upgraded to serious condition this week.

Amina's father, John Bowman, had said his daughter recently took up basketball and loved the sport.

Teammates left a space for Amina on picture day, and the picture was provided by family members.

Brad Camp with Olympic Photo Group said all net proceeds from sales of the picture will go to the Amina Bowman Trust set up at Bank of America for her medical expenses. To order a photo, click here to visit Olympic's website.

Bowman was shot by a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol when it accidentally fired from inside a 9-year-old classmate's backpack.

Attorneys for the Bowman family said they plan to investigate civil charges in the shooting.
