ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Moments after a man was fatally gunned down in north St. Louis, News 4's Robin Smith caught up with a woman who is sick of the gun violence in the area.

“We can't keep living like this,” said Shantay Fitzpatrick “It's unsafe.”

Fitzpatrick lives in north St. Louis with her husband and two kids. She said she is fearful of her children going outside because of the shootings in the area.

“When my child gotta come outside, my child's gotta duck from bullets,” Fitzpatrick said. “A bullet doesn't have any name on it.”

News 4 caught up with Fitzpatrick moments after 40-year-old Ronald Collins was killed by a bullet while on a porch in the 5900 block of Highland Tuesday afternoon.

Collins' death is one of the more than 80 homicides so far in 2015 in the City of St. Louis.

Watch the video above for Fitzpatrick's entire reaction.
