An Uptown man is preparing to have surgery Tuesday morning to have a bullet removed from his shoulder.
A week ago, Jeff Taylor was walking with two women in the French Quarter around Chartres and Dumaine when they were approached by three robbers. One of the robbers stuck a pistol in Taylor’s face.
Taylor grabbed the gun and was able to avoid being shot in the head. But he took a bullet to the shoulder which broke bones and tore muscles.
