1 PO­LICE: GUN­SHOT VIC­TIM ON THE MEND

Six bul­lets were re­moved from the 28- year- old man who was hit Wed­nes­day when gun­fire erupted on the city’s West End and took the life of a 41- year- old woman. Po­lice said the wounded man is re­cov­er­ing.

“He’s a very, very lucky man,” Po­lice Chief Ar­mando Perez said Fri­day. “They took six bul­lets out of him. He lost a kid­ney, his spleen, a piece of his liver. He was shot through the scalp.”

Still, Perez said, “He’s go­ing to sur­vive. He’s go­ing to be al­right.”

The woman who was killed, a mother of two, was iden­ti­fied by fam­ily and friends last week as Myoshi Ba­gley.

“She wasn’t even the in­tended tar­get,” Perez said Fri­day.

The chief said de­tec­tives con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate to deadly shoot­ing and he hopes an ar­rest will be made soon, adding video footage is aid­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tors in their hunt for who is re­spon­si­ble.
