The Tulsa Police Department is searching for a suspect after a woman was shot in her driveway near East 41st Place North.

Police say around 6:00 p.m. a driver in a newer model silver Toyota Camry drove by the home twice before someone in the car started firing shots. Police say the woman was standing in front of her house with her teenage son when it happened.

TPD says the woman was hit once in the right side of her chest and as soon as they got to the scene, officers immediately started taking life-saving measures.

"The bullet entered into her chest and exited out of her back. Officers immediately started giving her first aid putting halo patches on the wound to prevent the bleeding. EMSA came and took the victim to the hospital she’s in critical condition," said Capt. Mike Williams.

Police say they do not have a description of the people in the car, but they do know that it is a newer model silver Camry. If you have any information on this shooting, call Crime Stoppers.
