    Yeah, something about that doesn't ring true with me. If I shot someone in the chest with one of my rifles from less than three feet or so, that person wouldn't be getting up to make a phone call, let alone be able to go lay down on the couch to wait for EMS. The only way I can see that happening is if it was a .22 rifle firing .22 shorts, or maybe one of those .177 pellet rifles. If it was anything .223 on up, even with a standard ball round, that's pretty much going to kill a human from that distance.

    Something about the information in this article is really off.

    ...

    Personally, i'm more concerned with this part:

    I wonder what reasoning they had to pull those gestapo tactics on seemingly random people.

    I spent 3 of my 4 years in college partying right there on Pacific in one of those Townhouses. Looking at it in the article brings back some fond memories (of partying, not quite what happened this time).

    Maybe she knew some Kung Foo and was able to apply some ancient defensive breast strokes to deflect the deadly blow.

    OR


    She is a Humpty Dumpty Behemoth and the bullet couldn't penetrate.

    OR

    She got punked with a pellet gun.

    The story sounds pretty fishy.

    I'm thinking attempted suicide. I don't know what the statistics are but generally when a woman attempts suicide using a gun they rarely shoot themselves in the head. They almost always shoot themselves in the chest. Women spend so much of their time focused on what they look like when they are living they don't want to mess it up in death.
