Mya Aaten-White Ferguson shooting

A 2012 graduate of Howard University says she was shot in the head during the demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo. Mya Aaten-White (pictured) posted an image to her Instagram page, which showed her bandaged and bruised, and her former school acknowledged her via social media.

Aaten-White was among the many citizens who took to the Ferguson streets to protest the police shooting death of 18-year-old Michael “Mike” Brown. Although details of who shot Aaten-White are not yet known, the current legal assistant posted the photo of her injury on Wednesday. From the photo, Aaten-White is in the back of an ambulance receiving treatment for her injuries.

According to a report from NBC Washington, there hasn’t been an announcement from authorities confirming if the shooting occurred during the protests nor has Aaten-White provided more information aside from her postings on social media. A scan of her Instagram page does show she was active and on the ground during the protests.

Howard University’s Twitter page featured a tweet in support of Aaten-White:

“Our prayers are with alumna Mya White & her family. The senseless gun violence has to stop. As a nation, we must stand against the violence,” it read.

The situation in Ferguson has been intense over the past few days, but the state finally took action Thursday by replacing an  police force in the predominantly Black city with the Missouri State Highway Patrol squad. The state’s Highway Patrol will be led by Capt. Ronald S. Johnson, an African-American man who is a native of St. Louis.
