Woman found shot inside minivan in Gwinnett Co.

By The Associated Press
NORCROSS - A woman was found wounded by gunfire inside a minivan in the southern part of Gwinnett County, and police are trying to learn what led to the shooting, although there is speculation the incident could be the result of a case of road rage.

Authorities say the woman was found bleeding in the vehicle at a gas station in Norcross early Monday morning.

CBS Atlanta reports that police found the woman around 1:30 a.m. outside the Exxon station on Jimmy Carter Blvd. near Rolling Way. Police said the woman, who was alert and breathing, was taken to a hospital.

Channel 2 Action News is reporting that the driver of the minivan, the woman's boyfriend, told police the shooting was the result of a road rage incident.

Gwinnett County police turned over the case to DeKalb County police when they learned that the shooting occurred in nearby DeKalb County.
