BATTLE CREEK, MI (WTVB) - A Battle Creek woman is lucky to be alive after she was shot in the head and at first didn’t even realize it. The 20-year-old and her boyfriend were driving down the 1st Block of Green Tree early Saturday morning when the window of her car shattered and she believed she had been injured by the flying glass. It was later that police and doctors found a 22-caliber slug under the skin near her ear but outside her skull. She was transferred from Bronson Battle Creek to Bronson Methodist in Kalamazoo for treatment.
Police have no idea who the gunman was they’re processing shell casings found near the shooting, hoping for a clue.
