SEATTLE – Amina Bowman, the Bremerton 9-year-old girl who was shot at school when a gun in a classmate’s backpack went off last month, is seen walking around the hospital in a video released by her family.
Bowman has undergone numerous surgeries since the Feb. 22 shooting at Armin Jahr Elementary School. She arrived at Harborview in critical condition.
The mother of the 9-year-old boy who brought the gun to school, and the mother’s boyfriend, are facing assault and firearm possession charges. Prosecutors say the boy, who lives with his uncle, got the gun during a visit with his mother.
