Local Woman Walking With Bullet In Her Head
UPDATE: Day will be going into surgery on Fri. July 13 to remove the bullet still lodged in her head.
A Macon woman is stable after a bullet hit her head on Saturday.
A bullet ricocheted off the Kris’s Corner Shop roof and into Doris Day's head. According to the Macon Police Department, officers were dispatched to Millerfield Road after receiving a call that Day was shot after an altercation broke out at the car wash next door.
Day said she heard gun shots and was trying to run into the convenient store when a bullet hit her head.
She was immediately rushed to the Medical Center of Central Georgia but soon released after doctors told her they wouldn't be able to remove the bullet for at least 10 days in order for the scar tissue to heal.
Day is happy her kids weren't with her.
“It was just me by myself, and you know everyone is going around talking that I'm dead,” she said.”I’m well alive. Talking, walking, happy and everything. Only thing I’m pissed off about is that I've got a bullet sitting in my head, but I'm good."
The bullet did not penetrate past her skull. After being released she came back to the store and even showed up again on Sunday. Day says she wants the bullet removed and to continue with her everyday life.
