GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- A woman shot while trying to get her children out of the line of fire is out of the hospital, but doctors say they are unable to remove the bullet.
Amelia Lockridge, 33, was shot in the shoulder Tuesday night while two groups of young men fought on Jennette Ave. in northwest Grand Rapids.
Doctors determined its too dangerous to remove the stray bullet that hit her.
Witnesses say the gunfire came as a group of young men arrived on the avenue about 8 o'clock at night to confront another group at a house in the neighborhood. It started as a fist fight, but at least one of the outsiders pulled a gun and started firing. Lockridge's mother says the young mother was rushing her children inside when she was shot.
"All of a sudden, I turn and see a guy over there with a gun, and I hear 'pop, pop, pop,'" said neighbor Myrdis Scott.
