A woman received a serious but non-fatal gunshot wound to her torso in the early morning on June 10 near Oconee Street, according to a news release from the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.

The woman, a 26-year-old Athens resident, was dropped off at St. Mary’s Hospital over an hour after police received a call that she had been shot, the release said.

Police towed a tan Nissan Maxima found at an apartment complex with blood inside in order to process it, according to the release.

Police believe the shooting was not random. The woman “was evasive with police regarding the circumstances and location of how she received the injury,” the release said.
