A 32-year-old Oak Park woman suffered a minor injury when her sport utility vehicle was struck by a bullet while she was driving on Thousand Oaks Boulevard early Monday morning.

The victim was traveling eastbound on Thousand Oaks Boulevard near Via Colinas at 4:00 a.m. when the driver’s side window of her vehicle shattered. The victim suffered a minor injury when fragments struck her face. However, she initially thought someone had possibly thrown a rock at her vehicle.

The victim drove home, but later sought medical treatment at a hospital for her injury. The victim’s doctor examined the injury and concluded that she had possibly been shot. Evidence found by investigators in the area of the incident and inside the victim’s vehicle confirmed that a firearm had been used by an unidentified assailant.
