PUEBLO, Colo. -

A woman was shot in the leg about 8:35 p.m. Wednesday in Pueblo.

It happened in the 2200 block of West Street.

The victim was being treated at Parkview Medical Center.

Pueblo police tell our partners at the Pueblo Chieftain they were looking for a suspect in a possible gray or silver car, possibly a Pontiac, with stock rims. It also may have had a temporary license plate.

Capt. Eric Bravo said the shooting may be a domestic issue, the suspect being an ex-husband or ex-boyfriend.

"Apparently the suspect is driving by and sees his ex-girlfriend or wife outside of this house, and he starts shooting. He actually gets out of the car and walked up and started shooting," Bravo said.

West Street between 22nd and 23rd Streets was closed for a time while officers searched for evidence and interviewed witnesses.
