Just a few days ago, on August 14th 2017, a bullet grazed a woman in the back of the head while she was sitting in her home, in Pittsburgh’s Garfield neighborhood, clipping coupons! Can you imagine?
“When police and paramedics arrived at the home, the woman, who is in her mid-50s, was alert and conscious, police said. She was taken to a hospital.
The woman’s son said his mother was on a couch clipping coupons when she was grazed by the bullet. He said the shooter walked onto the home’s front porch and fired the gun.
Investigators said at least three other people were in the home at the time of the incident and were unharmed.
The Group Violence Intervention Unit is investigating.”
We all know cutting coupons is NOT a dangerous activity, unless, of course, you don’t know how to handle scissors. But this story caught our attention because of how crazy and scary it seems to just be sitting at home, trying to save your family some money, and then get hit by a random bullet. This could have been much worse than just a graze. We hope the shooter is caught soon and we’re happy to learn this coupon lady is OK!
