SEATTLE - A 16-year-old Washington state girl was spared serious, possibly fatal injuries after the glasses she was wearing deflected a bullet that struck her in the face in a drive-by shooting Saturday night, Seattle police say.
"I fell asleep with my glasses on," said Alonza Bryant. "If I didn't have my glasses on I wouldn't be here."
Police say at around 9:40 p.m., there were several people, including children, inside a Seattle residence. Alonza Bryant was lying on the couch in the living room. An unknown group of individuals, possibly in a dark sedan, drove by the house and began shooting.
Several of the shots went through the walls and one round went through the front window. Bryant was struck by a single round in the bridge of her glasses, breaking them.
