"The gunshot was at 9:20 and I didn't think anything of it because it's so common around here because of hunters," said neighbor Kim Ketterer.

Kim Ketterer says she's lived on Riverfront Road for five years and describes the neighborhood as very quiet but that wasn't the case Wednesday morning (3/23).

"I heard the ambulance so I looked out side ... shortly after my daughter called me and told me the lady's daughter had called her and said there's been a home invasion down there and the lady was shot," said Neighbor Billy Carver.

That lady was 55-year-old Margie Williams. A 911 call sent deputies to Williams' home. When they arrived, they found her with a gunshot wound to the forehead. Surprisingly, Williams was able to talk at the time and told deputies she was the victim of a home invasion; but deputies said they soon determined that was not the case.

Deputies said the bullet was removed from Williams' forehead and is being processed as evidence.

Meantime, neighbors are speculating as to what really happened.

"It could have been self inflicted or it could have been an accidental gun shot victim, but the fact that the person had a bullet hole in the middle of the forehead and even more remarkably that God let them live after," said neighbor Kevin Lewis.

Despite their initial findings which do not point to a home invasion deputies said an investigation is still ongoing.

Deputies said Williams was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where she has under gone surgery and is in stable condition.

Word among those in the neighborhood is that Williams is expected to make a full recovery.
