Life After Near-Death

Check out this multimedia package called “Right Place, Wrong Time” put together by the Oakland Tribune as part of a follow-up to the paper’s coverage of Oakland teenager Charity Gipson, who was shot in the head by a stray bullet when a fight broke out at her sister’s sweet 16 birthday party earlier this year. Gipson, now 14 years old, survived the shooting, but both the physical and the emotional damage are slow to heal.
