Miya Bailey, a local artist and entrepreneur, is the owner of Peters Street Station, an upscale art gallery and work space that serves the artists of the neighborhood. He told us that several bullets went flying through his front window.
“Someone’s going to die. That’s the number one fear,” he said. “This is an art community and design center. Artists come here and children come here. The whole community comes here just to create.”
Bailey says he believes the shooting may have been the result of an altercation involving patrons at a neighboring nightclub. Police haven’t confirmed this information.
