Shot in the Head During Attack, California Man Details ‘Miracle’ Recovery

(The Sacramento Bee) – A Northern California man who has been hailed as a hero for defending his friend and other bystanders during a suspected hate crime assault last year in Shasta County spoke Monday — the eve of the alleged attacker’s criminal trial — on his “miracle” recovery after being pistol-whipped and shot multiple times, including once in the top of his head.

The shooting happened April 18, 2021, at a boat launch in the town of Lakehead, where the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office said a man approached two victims and instigated an unprovoked attack. CONTINUE
