Around 6:30 p.m. near Redondo Beach

Des Moines police responded to a call of a possible drive-by shooting around 6:30 p.m. near Redondo Beach, according to Des Moines police Srgt. David Mohr. Police later determined it was actually a dispute that occurred inside a vehicle at the boat launch at Redondo Beach Drive.

An apparent dispute occurred inside the vehicle where the victim, her boyfriend and another couple were. During the dispute a gun was produced and went off once, hitting the victim in her chest, Mohr said.

He did not say who was holding the gun when it fired.

The victim was then dropped off at a Jack in the Box nearby and was transported via ambulance to Harborview Medical Center with what were believed to be at the time life-threatening injuries.

Mohr had an update on the victim’s condition, saying she was treated for the non-life-threatening injury and released Nov. 18.
