A man shot earlier this month could have also died if not for the help of a neighbor who is a nursing student named Tiffany, Crime Insider sources told Jon Burkett.

"I told him not to move around because I didn't know where he was shot,” she said. “He said it was his back, so I asked a neighbor for a towel and started applying pressure."

The Bryant and Stratton nursing student was performing practicals in her townhome parking lot on April 19. That was the first of three shootings that have happened on Delmont Street over the past three weeks

"We do have clinicals in nursing school, so it is hands-on and it teaches us different processes in certain scenarios," Tiffany explained.

The man the student worked to save was critically injured but survived.

However, late Thursday night violence erupted during a cookout in the 3800 block of Delmont, Crime Insider sources told Burkett.

Four people were shot. Anthony Eberhardt, 37, died at an area hospital.

One man from the shootout remained in critical but stable condition at last check Friday. Police said the two other victims suffered non- life threatening injuries.

Detectives said Thursday’s shooting is the county's 12th homicide investigation of the year.

Tiffany, a mother of four daughters, said the feeling that gunfire can erupt at any moment is nerve-wracking.

“I’d like to see more police, especially at night because that's when it mostly happens,” she said. “But I don't know. I wish the shooting would stop, but at this point, it's wishful thinking."
