Woman Struck, Wounded By Stray Bullet In Jersey City

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A woman was wounded Sunday afternoon when a stray bullet came speeding through the window of her apartment in Jersey City and struck her.

As 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten reported, the young mother was sitting in her apartment in what is by all accounts a safe six-family building at Old Bergen Road and Neptune Avenue in Jersey City. But trouble outside invaded.

The stray bullet smashed through her bedroom window, hitting her in the abdomen.

Lisa, the building super, lives right across the hall. She ran across to help.

“I went toward the father, and asked him what was wrong, and he told me that she got shot. And I said, ‘How?’ You know, and he said, ‘It came through the window.’”

At a time when there is a national debate on guns, Lisa added her voice to the chorus. Something, she said, has to be done to stop all the gun violence.
