NIAGARA FALLS – A 22-year-old woman was shot in the back of her left leg just before 1:30 a.m. Thursday outside the entrance of Club Joey’s in the 1500 block of Pine Avenue.

Police said the shot appears to have come from a pellet gun. The victim said she was smoking a cigarette when she heard two shots, then felt pain in her lower left leg.

The victim told police no vehicles were in the area but she did overhear a man say he was having problem with someone in an apartment across the street.

The woman drove to the emergency room of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center emergency for treatment, police said.
