A 16-year-old girl spent New Year’s Day in the hospital, after a bullet lodged in her head from celebratory gunfire.

Just four minutes after midnight, the girl was standing in her yard with her friends and family in Shasta County.

Witnesses reported hearing numerous gun shots going off in all directions. The girl started to bleed from her head, and was rushed to the hospital.

A bullet, possibly from a rifle, was removed from her scalp; it just missed her skull and was removed without major surgery.

The girl is expected to be ok.
