Around 10:20 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, 2019, the PCSO ECC received a 911 hang-up call and at the same time a PCSO Lieutenant who was in Dundee heard shots fired in the area of Daniel Street. When PCSO deputies arrived at the apartment complex where the shots were fired, they found a female victim inside of an apartment with a gunshot wound. PCFR treated the victim, and she was airlifted to LRHMC, where she underwent surgery. She succumbed to her injuries on Friday morning, June 28th.
