If memory serves, and I'm pretty sure it does, some well thrown snow balls were what set this whole event in motion. Also witnessed another shooting outside my apartment on Plum St. Was threatened a few times with knives outside of the NG Prison. It was a fun time, but wow, looking back at it, that was a pretty rough area.Gandolphs on Pine was a small place, but the friendly owners catered well to the VCU crowd. After a fun night there in 85', a group of regulars headed out of Gandolphs for a trip to Newgate. Myself and Mike Brown split from the crowd and took a detour through the gates of GRC. Meanwhile, the group continued across Main St. where a fight started. A car passenger got out and fired one shot at a former Ferrum linebacker, but, thanks to Painter's quick, but not deliberate action (reaching with both arms to grab someone) the bullet went through Painter's right triceps and his left forearm. Single bullet theory live, but not at Newgate Prison.
