Police say Kanjora got into an argument with her home care nurse over medication Thursday evening and fired a 22-caliber revolver into the left side of the woman's head.
Registered Nurse Erin Schaeffe, who's with Centre Home Care managed to drive herself to a neighbor's home, where coincidentally another nurse lived. The Good Samaritan applied pressure to the wound, until emergency personnel arrived.
Schaeffer was transported to Altoona Regional Health System where she had surgery to have the bullet removed and is now listed in fair condition.
Kenjora is being held on $1 million bond. According to the affidavit filed by police, Kanjora said she was sorry she shot her nurse and she didn't mean to hurt her. She just snapped.
Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 12.
