MILWAUKEE - Detectives are investigating Thursday after a woman in Milwaukee was hit in the face with pellets from a shotgun blast.

The shooting happened last night during an attempted robbery in a Walgreens parking lot near North 22nd Street and West Capitol Drive.

The woman was hit after three men fired at someone they were trying to rob, but the shot was deflected off of a car and hit her instead.

Police say she was treated at a local hospital and has been released.
