MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police say a woman drove herself to the hospital after she was shot in the Maplewood area Thursday afternoon.

According to Maplewood authorities, officers were dispatched to the 1500 block of Beam Avenue at about 4:30 p.m. When they arrived there, they found a woman shot inside a vehicle.

Because she had been close to the hospital, she was able to drive herself there, authorities said.

There was also a child inside the vehicle, believed to be roughly 5 years old. The child was not believed to be hurt.

The woman sustained non-life threatening injuries, police say.

Police are tracking down leads on a suspect.
