    Shooting victim goes to work with bullet in head

    RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. – A man who was hit by a stray bullet in the back of the head is back at work — with the slug still stuck in his skull. E.T. Strickland, 74, a commercial real estate seller, said the bullet hurts, but not enough to keep him from his job.

    Strickland was told by his doctors not to have the bullet removed unless it was pressing on any arteries or causing health problems. He does plan to see a neurosurgeon though because he wants it taken out if possible............

    Must have hit him at an angle, so its probably just lodged in his skull.
    If its in his brain it could get tricky.
