Eyeglasses deflect bullet saving 16-year-old’s life
A 16-year-old girl was spared serious harm after her eyeglasses deflected a bullet that struck her in the face during a drive-by shooting in Seattle on Saturday.
Alonza Bryant says that she fell asleep with her glasses on while lying on the couch of her residence when an unknown vehicle drove by the house and began shooting.
Several of the shots went through the walls and one round went through the front window. Bryant was struck by a single round in the bridge of her glasses, breaking them. The other occupants in the house called 911 as the car returned and fired into the house a second time. Amazingly, she was not seriously injured.
While Alonza’s mother insist that none living in the home has a connection to gangs, investigators believe the residence was targeted.
The investigation is ongoing.
