*DC’s NBC4 is reporting that a Howard University alumna was shot while protesting the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri Wednesday.
Cops fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the crowds of protestors Wednesday night. Mya Aeten-White, a 2012 graduate of Howard, says she was shot in the head during the police standoff.
She posted the above Instagram photo of herself bloodied and bandaged in the back of an ambulance.
Her condition is unknown, though several hours later, she posted she was in police custody and that her life was “intact.”
Aeten-White had been in St. Louis for graduate school.
