44 bullets flew wildly through the streets the night of Memorial Day, one of them, lodged in her throat."I already knew I was shot, but was, like, ‘God, please don’t let him shoot anymore, because if he keeps shooting, I’m gonna be done,’" Brown remarked.MORE HEADLINES:Brown says her boyfriend, and later, police, raced her to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center where she was rushed into surgery and, later, put on a ventilator, in critical condition."I have four missing teeth.
