“I was sleeping it was so early I just heard like 5 shots and that’s what woke me that was my alarm clock,” a tenant in a nearby apartment complex, Leshon Jones said

He added: “I didn’t want to peek my head through the window and then they still shooting and then I got shot,”

Meairra Mansara and her boyfriend were riding scooters down northside drive when they were attacked, after telling a man driving by to stop catcalling at the victim.

Mansara’s boyfriend, Juwan Davis told the man to leave them alone.

But one of the bullets hit Mansara in her shin and shattered her tibia after the lovers rode down the street in an attempt to get away when bullets started to fly.

Any Eyewitness said: “From the distance I see someone go down”

He added: “It was really heartbreaking she was screaming she was crying, and she kept grabbing her phone to call her mom,”

Neighbors said hey believe violence is never the answer and rejection is not an excuse.

“It’s definitely a cowardly act to try and shoot somebody just because they don’t want to talk to you,” exclaims Jones.

“Take your licks and just go on there to someone else…don’t take it out on someone who rejected you,” said Savage.”

According to the victim’s mother, she will now have a permanent rod in her leg and is looking at at least six weeks of recovery until rehab therapy.
