Preview: "Searching for Answers — Inside the Irving Plaza Shooting"
Model Maggie Carrie hasn’t spoken much about the gunshot wound she sustained in the May shooting, but she relives that night in REVOLT’s new special.
As gun violence continues to be an unanswered ailment in our nation, REVOLT sits down with 26-year-old aspiring artist Maggie Carrie Heckall, who was fortunate enough to survive the shooting at Irving Plaza this past May.
In this exclusive teaser, we have the difficult conversation as to what really happened that night. As Maggie walks us through the incident inside the Manhattan venue, we learn how a night out on the town celebrating her own birthday took a turn for the worst. The innocent bystander and popular model has been the head of her household after losing her mother at an early age, but after being struck in the leg with a bullet, life has been that much more of a challenge tending to the day-to-day needs of her bedridden brother and herself.
Besides posting to Instagram to address how NYPD officers mistreated her and her loved ones and to speak out on the security procedures of venues like Irving Plaza, Maggie Carrie has been silent about the entire night until now, in attempts to bring normalcy back to her life and everyone who plays an important part of it.
