A mother of two was shot and injured while seated in her car with her children in Penal on Sunday.
The 29-year-old woman was in a Nissan Tiida about to drive out of an apartment complex at Lake View Road with her husband and two children.
Initial reports stated that around 7:45 pm she saw three men, with their faces covered and wearing dark clothing, armed with firearms, running past her car into the compound of the apartment complex.
She panicked and raised her hands to shield her face, causing the car to roll forward. She then heard a loud explosion and realised she got shot in her right elbow. The suspects are believed to have escaped in a black vehicle.
The woman was taken to the hospital where she is being treated. Police retrieved one 9 mm spent shell and a projectile at the scene.
Investigations are continuing.
