Manny Fantis of WUSA is reporting that Mya Aeten-White, a 2012 Howard University graduate, who was shot during the Ferguson protests, will recover from her injuries. Aeten-White says she was shot in the head on Wednesday when police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the crowds of protestors who had gathered to protest the killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.
“Mya White shared a photo on Instagram of her face scraped and bruised and with her neck in a brace.

Aeten-White was attending graduate school in St. Louis. She posted on her Instagram account that she was “okay” and in police custody.
Howard University issued a statement on Aeten-White via Twitter:
