Ferguson woman shot in head

Brandie Piper | August 13, 2014

FERGUSON, Mo. – A woman was shot in the head about one mile from where St. Louis County police shot a suspect early Wednesday morning. The woman was shot while walking outside in the 1300 block of Highmont around 12:15 a.m. When officers arrived at the scene they found her inside a home, alert and talking…

Police say the woman was taken to an area hospital and is stable.

In fact, the woman in question, ‘Spookwrites’ (aka Spook Cleopatra) a self-described ‘literary artist,’ even posted a selfie from the ambulance.

About an hour later and a mile away, St. Louis County police shot a suspect who they say pointed a weapon at an officer."

Where is the outrage?

Meanwhile, here are some additional details from an irony proof NBC News:

Woman Shot in Head in Missouri Town Roiled by Michael Brown Protests

By Daniel Arkin | August 13th 2014

A woman was shot in the head in an apparent drive-by shooting early Wednesday in the Missouri town wracked by protests following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer.

St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman said four to five black males apparently carried out the shooting on Highmont Drive in Ferguson, Mo., and fled in a car.

We are slightly amazed the police released the racial make-up of the alleged perps, and even more amazed that NBC reported it.

The unidentified woman was transported to a hospital via EMS, but her condition was unknown just before 1:30 a.m. local time. It was not immediately clear if the shooting was in any way related to the recent unrest in Ferguson.

Ironically, Spookwrites has been chronicling the Michael Brown shooting on Instagram. Though she might not appreciate the irony.
