Oklahoma 11-Year-Old Shoots Grandmother In Back of Head; Grandmother Survives
An 11-year-old Oklahoma boy allegedly shot his grandmother in the back of the head after giving her a bad report card.
42-year-old Annie Mougell-Walker survived the shooting. The bullet is still lodged in the back of her head.
Mougell-Walker said that her grandson had brought home a report card that he knew she would not approve of.
"He brought home some sort of progress report," Officer Jillian Roberson told the New York Daily News. "She begins to read it and he clearly knows what it says, and it's not in favor of him."
The boy fetched a .22-caliber gun from his grandmother’s bedroom as she was reading. He then reportedly shot his grandmother in the back of the head. She called 911 and the police arrived almost immediately. They questioned the boy, who denied having fired the gun. But as they searched for another explanation, Mougell-Walker spoke up.
"He got in trouble today at school, so when I got home I was gonna talk to him furthermore about it. 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 said.
The boy was charged with shooting with intent to kill, Officer Roberson said.
One neighbor, Jennifer Franklin, was shocked to return to her usually peaceful apartment complex, only to be met by a crime scene.
"All the kids in the neighborhood play together, so it's sad, very sad," Franklin told KOTV.
No one can understand how a bad report card could have escalated into a shooting.
"I think it's really crazy for a child to shoot their own [grand]mom," said family friend Felicia Sykes said.
Mougell-Walker is currently in a neck brace. Doctors will only be able to remove the bullet when it can work its way out.
