A woman has serious, but not life-threatening, injuries after being shot in her car early Wednesday in Lexington, police say.

About 1:30 a.m. in the 3000 block of Allante Brook Court off Wilson Downing Road, a woman was pulled over to the side of the road when another vehicle approached hers, according to Lexington police Lt. Chris Van Brackel. Someone in the other vehicle fired several shots into the victim’s car and multiple bullets struck the woman, Van Brackel said.

The woman was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital after she called police, according to Van Brackel.

She told police she thinks the suspect was in a gray vehicle with tinted windows. It’s not clear if the shooter was a man or woman, Van Brackel said.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call police at 859-258-3600.
