The victim says she's been wanting to lose weight, but if the extra fat keeps her alive she wants to be as big as she can.
Samantha Lynn Frazier says she heard two pops when she walked into Herman's Place early Saturday. The 35-year-old then felt pain and saw blood on her hand after she grabbed her left side.
Atlantic City police say Frazier was an innocent bystander. Detective Lt. Charles Love says the gunman was aiming for a man who escaped with a bullet hole in his down jacket.
The suspect remains at large.
Frazier tells The Press of Atlantic City she had been "hollering'' how she wanted to lose weight. She now says "I want to be as big as I can if it's going to stop a bullet."
