A woman who was close to death last week is now getting ready to go home from the hospital.
Sgt. Brandon Danielson with the Council Bluffs Police tells 6 News that 56 year old Tammy Smart, who is under observation at Nebraska Medicine, will be sent home next week. Smart has now been taken off of life support and should make a fair recovery, although she's expected to have blurry vision.
Jessica Elvins is in custody accused of attempted murder in connection with the Thursday evening shooting near 28th and Avenue A. Investigators say before being placed on life support, Smart identified Elvins as the shooter.
Council Bluffs authorities were alerted to the shooting shortly after 6:00 PM on December 13th and when they arrived on the scene they found Smart suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
the suspect, 38 year old Elvins was in an upstairs bedroom of the home where the shooting happened. She was taken in for questioning and eventually arrested on a charge of Attempted Murder. Three other people who were at the scene were interviewed and released.
