#breakingnews #brownsville #shotsfired SAVED BY HER BRA STRAP‼️ 21yo Daniesa Murdaugh was struck in her back by one of the bullets during the shootout but suffered graze wounds instead of a serious spine injury because the bullet got stuck in her bra strap. Paramedic told her he’d never seen anything like it. Thank God. @nypd says at least 2 shooters, anyone with info can make an anonymous call to 1-800-577-TIPS. #hot97 @hot97 #fox5ny @fox5ny
We will keep you updated. Our hearts and prayers are with the victims and families.
