Woman released from hospital after shooting near Midway Mall, police investigating
Police are searching for three persons of interest after a woman was shot in the head in the parking lot of Midway Mall in Sherman early Sunday morning.
Police say the shooting happened around 1 a.m. in the parking lot at Roozie's Studio Bar.
Krista Reese, 18, of Wichita Falls, said a fight started in the parking lot after midnight.
"A guy had pulled a gun out and started aiming it and then he got into his car and when they drove off, he aimed it out of his window and started it back at all of us, and I just felt myself get shot in the head," Reese said.
She was in town visiting a friend who was supposed to perform at Roozie's.
"I was just thinking to put pressure on it and just pray and find somebody to help me," Reese said.
She says it was the scariest moment of her life as she laid on the ground waiting for help.
"I thought I was going to die," Reese said.
Police and witnesses say at least one other person was injured. Their identity has not been released.
"I ran right through the gunfire because when I got there I didn't know who was fighting and this is my brother, so I didn't really care I just took off running," Damenace said, who was set to perform Saturday night.
Tirqaroni and Damenace are rappers and wanted to go by their stage names.
They were supposed to perform at the bar, but never got the chance.
"At first it sounded like a bottle had dropped but then I heard like ten more, so I'm going 'that's a gun' and everybody started running," Tirqaroni said.
They said security led people to a room where they could take cover.
Reese was released from the hospital around 4 a.m. Sunday after doctors removed all but a fragment of the bullet. Doctors say she will make a full recovery.
Police say they have three persons of interest for the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call Sherman police.
