JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A Jersey City grandmother is in the hospital after getting caught in the middle of a drive-by shooting.
Ada Lopez, 70, has been surrounded by friends and family at her hospital bedside. The doting grandmother survived a drive-by shooting that left her with three bullet wounds on Thursday.
She was outside on Griffith Street near Sherman Avenue when police said four suspects in a car suddenly drove by and opened fire.
“She was outside the car and shots were fired,” her granddaughter Jasmine Vega said. “She fell to the floor and we realized she was shot. I picked her up and brought her into the driver’s side with me.”
