A survivor of a series of shootings in southwestern Michigan has been honored at a church with prayer, praise and $19,200.
Tiana Carruthers cried as she appeared in a wheelchair Sunday at Galilee Baptist Church in Kalamazoo. WOOD-TV says she called them “tears of joy.”
Carruthers was one of two people who survived the shootings in the Kalamazoo area on Feb. 20. Six people died.
The 25-year-old Carruthers suffered broken fingers and thigh bones and has a bullet lodged in her liver. She says she just wants to walk and move her arm. She says, “I’m getting there.”
The money for Carruthers was mostly raised at a concert. She says the community’s support “just warms me up.” (AP)
