MANASSAS, Va. (CBSDC/AP) — Prince William County police say a Gainesville woman was shot in the leg while watching her son’s soccer game.
Melissa Jaramillo was sitting in a chair with her daughter and husband watching her 11-year-old son play soccer at the George Hellwig Memorial Park in Manassas on Sunday evening, when she felt a sharp pain in her right leg.
Jaramillo went to a hospital thinking she might have been hit by a BB, but police say doctors found a small bullet, possibly a .22 caliber round, in her thigh. She was hospitalized overnight and says doctors decided not to remove the bullet for now.
No one at the game heard a shot and police say no one has reported seeing anything out of the ordinary.
The Northern Virginia Soccer Club sent an email alert to parents.
