HAMMOND — A suspect has been arrested following a shooting at a Hammond gas station that sent a mother to a hospital, police said.
The woman was shot in a car Tuesday while in the parking lot of a Citgo gas station, police said.
Her child was in the car at the time, and the child didn't suffer any injuries, police said.
Police responded to the shooting shortly before 4 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of 169th Street and Indianapolis Boulevard, Hammond police Lt. Steve Kellogg said.
Authorities had the Citgo Gas Station at the intersection temporarily blocked off with police tape as officers investigated the scene and a silver car was towed from the gas station.
Police said they believe the shooting was an isolated incident and potentially related to a domestic dispute.
The woman was transported to an area hospital with unknown injuries, Kellogg said.
The suspect is described as a man, but further information on his identity was not available pending criminal charges, Kellogg said.
At this time, the investigation is ongoing and no other information will be released Tuesday evening, Kellogg said.
