A bullet intended for someone else paralyzed Karina Sartiaguin from the waist down in 2010. She was 16 when she was shot outside her Aurora high school. Her story is featured, alongside a hundred others, in a new book called "SHOT: 101 Survivors of Gun Violence in America."
New York photographer Kathy Shorr traveled the country, photographing gun violence survivors ranging in age from 8 to 80, many in the very place they'd been shot. Shorr says the book is not meant to "condemn gun owners" or make a political statement, but to humanize the issue. Sartiaguin tells Colorado Matters that being photographed for the book helped her realize how for she's come since that day nearly seven years ago.
