A 19-year-old woman is recovering after being shot in the head Thursday night in Pittsburgh’s Knoxville neighborhood.
According to police, Asia Camp was grazed on the top of her head by a bullet while she was walking along Rochelle and Zara streets with a group of friends.
“I just heard a loud bang and then I felt like I got hit in the head with a rock or something,” Camp said. “I’m just glad to be alive. They said a couple centimeters lower, I could have been dead.”
Camp was rushed to UPMC Mercy Hospital where she needed two staples in her head to close the gash. She was released Friday morning.
“We were just walking up and I felt a shot in the head and I tried to run in the house and realized I had a lot of blood coming down my face,” Camp said.
According to police, they’re investigating the incident but don’t have any leads. Camp told Channel 11’s Vince Sims that one of her friends has enemies that may have been shooting at her.
“It makes me think a little bit differently and value life more,” Camp said.
Camp’s mother, Amina Camp, said she’s upset at the level of violence in the neighborhood.
“I just feel like all these kids need to get together and find something else to do besides killing each other and shooting at each other,” Amina Camp said.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact police.
