A woman was shot Thursday afternoon near the UNLV campus in what police described as a domestic incident.

Officers were called to the 4800 block of South Maryland Parkway at about 12:25 p.m., Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Officer Aden OcampoGomez said. Officers found a woman with a gunshot wound sitting in her car at a Bank of America parking lot. She told officers a man had shot at her when she was in the parking lot of a nearby Jack in the Box.

UNLV police tweeted out to students that there was a “shooting at Bank of America.” Metro said the woman drove to the bank after she was shot. Police said the shooting occurred in a domestic dispute.

The woman was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center with nonlife-threatening injuries.
