ROANOKE – A Glade Hill woman was struck in the face by a stray bullet Saturday afternoon in Roanoke, investigators say.
Roanoke City Police say the 42-year-old woman was on Cove Road at 4 p.m. when they received a shots fired call. The vehicle the woman was driving had been struck by a bullet.
Facebook photos posted by the victim show impact to the windshield and to the woman’s upper lip.
The woman was treated at the scene by Roanoke Fire-EMS and declined transport to the hospital.
Witnesses interviewed at the scene told police a white SUV fired shots at a gold Chevy Malibu near Cove Road and Fairhope Road, NW close to where the victim was driving. Neither vehicle stopped, investigators say.
The Chevy Malibu was later found by police in the 4700 block of Oakcliff Drive Sunday with bullet holes, police say.
