The Meridian Police Department is continuing to investigate an robbery Saturday night in which a woman was shot.
Meridian Police Department Public Information Officer Dareall Thompson said three people reported being followed to the Northwood Place Apartments, located on Highway 39 North, by a red 2008 Chevy Impala after leaving a local night club.
"As the three individuals were exiting the vehicle a black male approached them holding a gun," Thompson said. "One of the victims then punched the suspect while another ran inside to grab his gun."
After the suspect was punched he fired his gun and a bullet struck a woman in the leg, Thompson said. She was taken a Meridian hospital and treated for her injury, which was non-life threatening, police reported.
Thompson said the suspect got away in the Impala, along with two black females and an additional black male.
