Police in Bethany are still looking for a man, who witnessed a young woman being shot in the face.

Destiny Foster, 20, is currently at OU Medical Center and is listed in critical condition. Her mother says Destiny is not expected to ever walk again.

"She is only 20 years old," said Tammy Milius, Destiny's mother. "She has the rest of her life ahead of her!"

Millius says Destiny was with her boyfriend and two other guys at a house in the 6200 block of N.W. 33rd in Bethany.

The police report states they were all drinking when both Foster and her boyfriend say one of those guys,

Colin Jeffery Gallamore, 28, pulled out a gun and shot Foster in the face. The report says a man named Walter was with Gallamore, and that both fled the scene.

"They shot her and they just fled the scene," said Milius. "They left! And the only one that was there that saved her life was her boyfriend - and he called the ambulance. Had he not, she would have died."

Police say Gallamore showed up at the police station Monday afternoon, and was subsequently arrested. He is currently in the Oklahoma County jail on $11,000 bond, accused of pointing a firearm and carrying a firearm while under the influence.

Destiny's mother has made countless visits to OU Medical Center as her daughter undergoes surgery after surgery to her face and spine.

"She just had a surgery on her back they inserted a rod and some screws," said Milius.

Milius says she had a big party planned for Destiny's 21st birthday next month.

That has now been placed on hold until she recovers.

"This has affected not just her but everybody's life that knows her," said Milius. "So many people are being so supportive and caring and it's very overwhelming!"

Milius is still stunned someone shot her daughter.

"Everyone knows, number one rule, you do not point guns at people," said Milius. "You don't point guns at people."

The one thing Tammy is asking the public to do is to donate blood in her daughter's name, so that they can receive credits here at the hospital to help with that cost.

All you have to do is go to any Oklahoma Blood institute office, and say it in care of Destiny Foster, who is in ICU.
