Felisha Thomas was shot twice in the back of the head and survived.
The Alabama mother of four is expected to recover from her life-threatening injuries after being shot Sunday (September 8) night, reports Fox 10. By Monday (September 9) she was responsive and able to open her eyes and nod yes and no.
Around 9:30 p.m., the family was alerted to an emergency and instructed to go to Third Avenue in Trinity Gardens in Mobile. Upon their arrival, police informed them Thomas had been shot at least once in her head.
It wasn’t until she was examined at the hospital that police and medical staff discovered she’d been shot a second time, also in the back of her head, reports Fox 10.
“I don’t know why someone would want to shoot my baby in the back of her head cause she’s just not no violent person,” the 25-year-old woman’s mother, who asked to remain anonymous, told Fox10.
Thomas’ cousin said the family is now in fear.
“We’re scared,” the cousin, who also wanted to remain anonymous, told the news station. “We fear for our lives. And not only our life, but hers, because you know she’s fighting. She’s fighting real hard.”
The Mobile Police Department’s public affairs office has not responded to BET’s request for comment.
