A terrifying incident occurred this weekend when a woman was shot in the face while sitting at a red light in Mobile. The shooting occurred around 1:30 AM Sunday morning near Dauphin and Monterey Street. The victim, who has not been identified, was miraculously able to drive herself to the emergency room after the attack.
Thankfully, the victim is in stable condition and was able to talk with police. However, the shooting did cause her to lose an eye.
Police say the victim was sitting at a red light when four men approached on foot. One of them unveiled a weapon and proceeded to shoot the woman in the face. The four men are wanted on assault charges, though additional charges are likely.
According to Fox 10 News, the attack was an attempted car jacking. As one of the attackers wielded the gun, another was attempting to enter the passenger door. Police believe all four were African American, and either teenagers or in their early 20s. The case is still under investigation.
