Elderly woman shot in Jerusalem, lightly hurt

An elderly woman in Jerusalem’s Neve Yaakov neighborhood is shot in the head and lightly wounded while walking in the street.

Police say it is unclear who shot the 77-year-old, but that they are investigating and searching the area.

The Hadassah Hospital in Ein Kerem says doctors dislodged a slug that was embedded in the woman’s skull.

Doctors say she suffers from a fractured skull but is stable and fully conscious.

Hadassah sends this picture of the slug extracted from her head:
