Investigators with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office are asking for the public's assistance after a woman reported that she had been shot on I-26. 

The investigation started on Monday at 6:15 p.m. when a deputy responded to an area just past Exit 199 on I-26 for a shooting. 

Deputies then located a black 2013 Nissan Altima that had been shot on the driver's side. 

BCSO officials say the driver sustained minor injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. 

The victim's father told the deputy that his daughter had been shot while driving home from work. 

The father said his daughter told him that she had been shot on I-26.

When the father arrived on scene he saw blood coming from his daughter's neck and a bullet in the passenger side door. The father then called 911 and aided his daughter. 

The victim was transported to Trident Hospital. 

"It is uncertain what caused the injury at this time," BCSO officials said. "The Sheriff’s Office is seeking assistance from the public regarding this incident."

"If you were in the area of I-26 near Exit 199 at approximately 5:39 PM on Monday, April 17, 2017 and observed this incident or have information that would be helpful, please contact Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111 or the Criminal Investigations Division at 843-719-7009," BCSO officials said.
