Freak Shooting Leaves Galveston Ag in Critical

By  | 

A Texas A&M-Galveston student is trying to recover from a freak shooting at a friend's apartment.

Ross Frow was last listed in critical condition at a Galveston hospital.

It was early Monday morning that the 22-year-old was at a friend's apartment. That friend was packing for a move when he found he hadn't packed away.

"Towards the end of the night, he discovered he had left a Glock 22 out on the table, and he was going to return that Glock to his bedroom," said Sgt. Jeremy Kylen with the Galveston Police Department.

Frow was reportedly on the balcony with friends smoking when the resident tripped on a chair in the home, and as he fell, the weapon discharged, sending a bullet through the front door and into Frow's jaw.

"From what I understand, the bullet is lodged in his neck near an artery, and when it comes to bullets, millimeters could be the difference between life and death," Kylen said.
