Shooting Victim Gives Facebook Live Update
Home Invasion, Triple Shooting Send Three to Hospital
A shooting victim took to social media to let friends and family know he was okay after a triple shooting late Thursday.
Police and emergency personnel responded to the Hood Street Apartments around 9:30 Thursday night after three men, all in their thirties were sprayed with gunfire.
The victims share the same last name but the nature of their relationship is unclear.
One of them checked in with well wishers hours after the shooting from his hospital gurney via Facebook Live
“I’m good. It’s 3 in the morning. I’m hit in the leg but I’m straight,” he said.
Miraculously the 34 year old victim and two others did not suffer any life threatening injuries but he told his followers the timing couldn’t be worse.
“I done got shot on my momma’s birthday. Ain’t that something? Worst gift in the world she’s got to come see me like this here.
If they will do it to me they’ll do it to anybody”
On the scene few witnesses were talking and people in the neighborhood scattered when we approached the small apartment building.
Police are still searching for an unknown number of assailants.
