From there, the young woman was found by a neighbor who immediately helped her out. 64-year-old Louis Leak told the news “I heard the shots and then screaming. I ran down to the corner and saw the body. She was lying between two cars, and she didn’t look like she was alive to me. She bleeding out.” He went on to say, “She looked bad. There was a lot of blood. Her relatives ran over and were screaming ‘Oh, Lord, she’s been shot.’”
From there, the young woman was taken to the Brookdale University Hospital. She was in critical condition when she arrived.
