A 72-year-old woman is recovering in the hospital after she was shot in the head, while she was out running errands.

The incident was reported in Erwin, North Carolina around 10:30 a.m.

Authorities say the victim was sitting in her vehicle at a stop sign when she was shot in the head.

Officials received a call about a shooting and arrived to the scene to find the woman unconscious at her steering wheel.

The victim was rushed to a hospital in Fayetteville where she remains in critical condition.

During a press conference, Harnett County Sheriff Wayne Coats said that they are investigating what led to the shooting and that they are looking for  a black four-door sedan and a possible Mercury Marquis with a faded color.

“We’re going to find them” Coats said of the people involved. “We will find them — not going to stop.”
