Woman fighting for her life following Bayview shooting

A 22-year-old woman was fighting for her life after being shot in the Bayview on Thursday afternoon, police said.

Officers responded to a Shot Spotter Activation in the unit block of Whitfield Court at about 1:28 p.m., but didn’t find the victim there, according to police.

Police sooner learned the victim had been driven to a hospital and dropped off there, where she was in life-threatening condition.

While no arrests have been made, police believed there was a large group of people fighting in the area of Ingalls Street and George Court, which led to the shooting.
