A Detroit high school senior class president who was shot in the head at a birthday party two months ago stunned his friends and classmates this week when he emerged on stage at their graduation.
On April 6, Balaal Hollings, an honor student, football star and the student council and senior class president at Northwestern High School was shot in the head outside the birthday party of one of his best friends.
“I had missed her dinner, so I promised to make it to the party,” Hollings told ABCNews.com. “After the party, some East Side boy was shooting for no reason. A bullet hit the wall, and then it hit me.”
