PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Police say a 19-year-old woman has been shot while driving in Providence.

Maj. David Lapatin says the victim was driving in the area of Academy and Whitford avenues at about 6 p.m. Wednesday when someone shot at her car several times.

Her passenger took her to the hospital where she was treated for one gunshot wound not considered life threatening. Neither her name nor her home town were released.

Police do not think it was a random shooting, but have not announced if they have any suspects or made any arrests.

Lapatin says investigators think the suspect was somewhere on the street waiting for the car to drive by.
