Woman Shot Several Times, Child Shot In Arm

CREATED Feb. 12, 2013

Council Bluffs, IA - Police are questioning two people in Harlan, Iowa following a shooting at the Indian Hills Village Apartments in Council Bluffs.

Police tell us 22-year-old Heather Wilson had just walked out of her house to get in her car, when someone in a white car pulled up and started shooting.  Police say as many as 11 rounds were fired.

Wilson was hit multiple times.  Her young children were also outside.   A 19-month-old boy was hit in the right arm.  The other child was not hurt.

Kelly Longfox lives next door.  She called 911 and recalls the terrifying wake up call.

"I was shaking, I was shaking, you know and after police got here I came out and walked around here a little bit and I saw her laying on the ground and I just started crying, I was just so overwhelmed by what had happened. I've never experienced anything like this."

Police are conducting interviews with witnesses and family members and also working with Harlan police to determine if there's a relationship between the victim and shooter.

Both the woman and child are expected to make a full recovery.
