A woman in Oklahoma said this week that her 11-year-old grandson shot her in the head with her own gun while she was reading an unfavorable school progress report.
Annie Mougell-Walker explained to KOTV that incident had happened after her grandson had trouble at school that day.
“He got in trouble today at school, so when I got home I was gonna talk to him furthermore about it,” she recalled. “Before I could talk to him all I saw was a big bang of a flash and heard it, and I knew I was shot in the back of my head.”
Mougell-Walker was taken to Saint Francis hospital, but she returned home with the .22-caliber bullet still lodged in her head. Doctors said that they could not remove it, and that it would have to come out by itself.
Officer Jillian Roberson told the New York Daily News that the shooting seemed to be connected to a report card.
“He brought home some sort of progress report,” Roberson said. “She begins to read it and he clearly knows what it says, and it’s not in favor of him.”
Mougell-Walker had initially told police that her grandson was not responsible for the shooting. She eventually changed her story, and he was charged with shooting with intent to kill.
