Police are investigating after a woman was shot on a Brooklyn street over the weekend.
Investigators say the 40-year-old heard gunshots around 8 p.m. Sunday on Louisiana Avenue near Glenwood Road in Canarsie.
She felt pain, and realized she had been hit in the torso.
The woman is now being treated at a nearby hospital.
"Guns are going off in our community and people are dying.
Unfortunately we just had an individual shot on Utica Avenue in
Bed-Stuy. It happened in broad daylight. They're brazenly pulling out
guns in broad daylight, so what does that say about the gun laws that
we have right now?" said Tony Herbert, a local community
The victim is expected to recover.
