For the average person involved in a street brawl, the part in which you suffer a gunshot wound would usually represent the end of you participating in that brawl.
However, Brittany Thomas is not your average person.
Brittany stepped outside from her apartment in Ocala,Florida earlier this month when another woman ,whom Brittany says she didn't even know, accused her of talking bad about her.
the war of words turned into a fight with fists, and a crowd grew around the brawl, with pushing and some trying to separate the women. It was then that Thomas said two gunshots were heard.
Thomas said a bullet hit her in the chest, temporarily stopping the fight.
People screamed and scattered but Brittany remained focus on the fight and got right back into throwing fists and pulling hair before realizing that she was even hit.
"I rubbed my back; that's when I saw a little streak of blood on my hand. I looked down and I had a hole in my chest," said Thomas.
A witness told police that a man in his 20s fired a gun at the ground as the group was fighting and then took off running.
"I hope he's caught," said Thomas.
