Late Monday afternoon, a man was walking on Watson Street when a vehicle pulled up parallel to him and shots begin to come out of the car. Someone inside, wielding a gun, fired several shots at the man.
The victim ran away from the scene and managed to get himself to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for treatment. It was at the hospital authorities interviewed the man, who said, after being wounded he called his friend to give him a ride to the hospital.
The incident unfolded little after 5pm, exemplifying the brazen nature of criminals that inhabit some of the worst streets in the city.
Police have yet to apprehend those responsible.
