COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A teen who was critically injured by a stray bullet received a special call, she said in a tweet.

Martha Childress tweeted that country musician Hunter Hayes called her on Wednesday.

Childress was with a group of friends waiting to catch a cab home when the shooting happened, according to Columbia police.

The USC freshman graduated from JL Mann High School earlier in 2013 but she is now in critical condition at a Columbia hospital after authorities in Richland County said a stray bullet hit her.

Hayes is signed to Atlantic Records and has had four Top 20 singles.
