SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Kanisha Johnson said it is a miracle she was not paralyzed or killed after being shot two times. She said she heard someone bang on her garage door in Mount Hope on Oct. 4.

When she opened it, she said her ex, Grady Mitchell, started talking about how he messed up. 

"Within a minute into him talking I just heard a pow," Johnson said. "Then the second time, I saw him point it at me, and then I heard another pow.

"I felt hot blood dripping from my earlobe, and I felt it dripping from my back and on the side of my shoulder, and I felt my body getting numb in seconds."

She claimed Mitchell tossed her in her own car, drove to the hospital and dumped her on the curb. 

"When I woke up they said that I was going to be okay and that my kids were alive and safe," Johnson explained. 

The single mother of four has been worried about caring for them amid mounting medical bills. 

Their friends' parents and her son's teacher at La Jolla High School joined together to create a GoFundMe page to help with everything from medical bills to food for the family.
