(Newser) – There was a shooting at Florida's Bethune-Cookman University Monday, and 19-year-old Juanye Jones thought he was grazed on the ear by a bullet. He didn't go to the hospital then, but he changed his mind Wednesday night, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The Palm Beach Post explains that he had a severe headache—and doctors who X-rayed him discovered the cause was a bullet fragment lodged in his head, behind his left ear. Weirder still: Doctors told Jones he needed to be transferred to another medical center for treatment, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports, but he left the hospital Wednesday night and it's not clear whether he followed their advice.

Also Wednesday, police found a black SUV that they're framing as a getaway vehicle, but there hasn't yet been a report of any suspects arrested. The Sentinel reports that three people were hit by bullets, but none are believed to have been involved in what triggered the 6:30pm shooting, which occurred outside the campus music building while students were milling around. One man reportedly started arguing with a second man standing in front of the building seconds before shots were fired; police believe they both fired shots. At least one student appeared to know a confrontation was coming because he'd said he wanted to watch, police say. (The surprising cause of this man's headache turned out to be much, much grosser.)
