Imagine going into a hospital for a checkup after getting headaches, only to find out there is a bullet in your head!
That is exactly what happened to a woman who had been complaining of headaches and was taken to the hospital where, her wife said, doctors found a bullet in her head days after she was hurt in a drive-by shooting in Southwest Miami-Dade.
According to Miami-Dade Police, Shakena Jefferson, 42, was grazed by a bullet after a drive-by shooting took place near her home on Tuesday.
Officials say doctors did an X-ray on her head, and found a bullet inside. Jefferson was treated for her wound and had to undergo a surgery to have the bullet removed.
She is expected to recover.
She was told she was only grazed by bullet earlier this week after a SW #Miami Dade shooting. Turns out 42-year-old Shakena Jefferson has a bullet in her head according to her family. Days later, she is said to be awaiting emergency surgery to remove the bullet. @wsvn #Exclusive pic.twitter.com/daFQDfqDxH
