There was a shooting at Florida's Bethune-Cookman University Monday, and 19-year-old Juanye Jones thought he was grazed on the ear by a bullet. He didn't go to the hospital then, but changed his mind Wednesday night, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
The Palm Beach Post explains that he had a severe headache ... and doctors who X-rayed him discovered the cause was a bullet fragment lodged in his head, behind his left ear.
Weirder still: Doctors told Jones he needed to be transferred to another medical center for treatment, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports, but he left the hospital Wednesday night and it's not clear whether he followed their advice.
Also Wednesday, police found a black SUV that they're framing as a getaway vehicle, but there has not yet been a report of any suspects arrested.
The Sentinel reports that three people were hit by bullets, but none are believed to have been involved in what triggered the 6:30pm shooting, which occurred outside the campus music building while students were milling around.
One man reportedly started arguing with a second man standing in front of the building seconds before shots were fired; police believe they both fired shots.
