Leday who’d just turned 24 two days prior to the shooting says she was out celebrating. “Like any other 24-year-old, I was just out partying and celebrating,” she explains. The night was going well- until it wasn’t. Leday explains. Around 2:30 a.m., she said she could sense something was wrong as she saw Quavo get upset during a dice game. She initially thought it was just regular trash talking but began to notice things was getting serious.” That’s when I knew something was wrong,” she said.

When gun shots were fired, Leday says she began to run. She then fell to the ground and felt a stinging sensation in the back of her head. Although she got shot, she was able to make it down an escalator and to a friend’s car, who took her to the hospital. “I really just can say I’m grateful to be here,” she said.

After spending a week in the hospital and recovering- Leday was released and went back home. She was unaware that anyone- including Takeoff was injured in the shooting.
