Police said officers responded to a shooting around 3:25 a.m. in the 4700 block of Eagleridge Circle and discovered a woman with multiple gunshot wounds.

The preliminary investigation revealed the woman was allegedly breaking into vehicles in the parking lot when a man shot at her, according to police.
