In November 2010, 12-year-old Guadeloupe Galeno-Hernandez was paralyzed after being hit by a stray bullet in the throat, which severed her spine. She spent a month at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, and then six months at St. Paul’s Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare.
A 9-year-old girl has left the hospital after she was accidentally shot by her 5-year-old brother in North Oakdale early last Friday evening. The girl was shot with a .22-caliber rifle that was apparently left out for repairs.
Oakdale Police say a 9-year-old girl was accidentally shot by her 5-year-old brother in North Oakdale early Friday evening. She was taken here to Region’s Hospital in St. Paul, and is currently listed in stable condition. Witnesses say she was sitting up and was able to respond to questions. But it seems there are still some big questions as to how this happened.
