Ortiz was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries. “This is an illegal social club, so it’s not supposed to be open, period.” Harrison emphasized.

Regarding the earlier shooting in which Ortiz had survived, Harrison said it happened on June 20 on a street in the confines of Precinct 44. In total, four people were shot that time, he said. Pix11.
