Victoryia Printz, 21, was shot in the right temple about 2:50 p.m. Wednesday in the 200 block of Crossgate Court in an “unknown manner by an unknown male with an unknown weapon,” according to a Springfield Police Division report.

Her injury is serious, according to a police report. But her injuries weren’t believed to life-threatening, said Sgt. Joe Tedeschi of the Springfield Police Division said at the scene of the shooting.

Printz was transported to the Springfield Regional Medical Center, the police report says.

The victim’s boyfriend was on scene but “it was unclear at the time of report his involvement,” in the incident, according to the police report.

Springfield Police Division investigators couldn’t be reached for comment or updates on Thursday morning.

UPDATE @5:08 p.m.(July 12):

A Springfield woman suffered a gunshot wound to the head, although her injuries were not life threatening, police said.

Officers spent about two hours at an apartment complex in the 600 block of Crossgate Court, but declined to provide many details while the case is being investigated. It’s not clear how many people were in the apartment when the incident occurred, nor is it clear who fired the shot or whether the shooting was accidental, police said.

Police also did not say what type of fire arm was used or if it was recovered.

“She was shot in the head but it doesn’t appear there was any kind of penetrating wound. She was very fortunate,” said Sgt. Joe Tedeschi of the Springfield Police Division.
