Salon owner to lose eye from beanbag round

(SEATTLE) -- A beauty salon owner was shot three times with a beanbag gun because officers thought she was reaching for a weapon, Los Angeles police said yesterday.

Annette Amoroso, 38, is expected to lose an eye from last week's shooting. She said police checking on a reported car theft ordered her onto the ground. "I was on my knees, with my hands up," she said. "First, they shot me in the shoulder. As I started to turn around, they shot me in the eye."
