Friends of surviving gunshot victim from a medical center shooting say she is a sweet person

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Friends of the female gunshot victim recovering at Delray Medical Center after an incident at Doctor's Choice Medical Center say she is a sweet person.

"She is really a nice person. It is really sad for us to know that this happened to her," friend Mirenia Cebello said.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, an employee at the center along with another man, were shot Thursday night. The male victim died, and the female victim was rushed to the hospital. The apparent shooter was also found deceased on the scene.

Cebello says Hispanic people mainly use the Medical Center and it is a tight knit community.

She says the victim enjoys helping others.

"She is really a sweet person and she loves to help everyone, so it is really sad for us," Cebello said.

Friends say the dispute at the Medical Center may have had to do with a contractor.

The Sherif's Office is not releasing the victims names.
