It was Friday night. A group of women were getting ready to celebrate a friend’s birthday. One of the women walked out of a midtown apartment on 27th Street when a man tried to take her purse.

When the woman resisted, friends say the man grabbed his gun and shot her in the arm.

“That is when I heard a woman screaming howling then it was total silence,” said Laura Ferrantelli

With bars just around the corner and and many homeless people in the area, neighbors say this midtown neighborhood isn’t necessarily quiet. But never did they expect anything like this would happen.

“I’m not going to walk outside when it’s dark anymore. Even if I had someone with me it is still not safe. What I understand from friends who live in the neighborhood even couples are being mugged at gun point,” said Ferrantelli

Friends say the victim is recovering well.
