Katie Guzenko, 27, was driving down the road when a .40 caliber bullet pierced the bridge of her nose. Two Black males were trying to shoot each other from opposite sides of the street as she happened to drive by.
Guzenko conflonted Ted Wheeler during a city council meeting on Wednesday. Guzenko is an immigrant from Ukraine.
“I have family in Ukraine and we’re worried for them and for their safety, while we’re in America, in a free country getting shot — it’s bizarre. My family there is reaching out to me to make sure that I’m OK, when they’re the ones in a war zone.” – Katie Guzenko
WARNING: this video is graphic, but I feel it’s important to share. This is Katie after the shooting. She is in shock. She was on an errand for a bridal shower when her entire life changed. I want you to see this because it shows the reality of Portland’s gun violence problem. pic.twitter.com/6T5CkmjZbZ
