Oklahoma City police are trying to determine if the shooting of one woman is related to the attempted carjacking of another.

A woman says she was trying to park her car around 1:30 a.m. at the Pinehurst Apartment complex near N.W. 122nd Street and MacArthur. She says three suspects tried to steal her car. One of them pulled out a gun and fired a shot through her window. The woman was hit by flying glass, but was not seriously injured. She managed to escape and call for help.

While police were responding to that call, they received another one about a woman who was trying to flag down drivers on the Kilpatrick Turnpike near Council. The woman told police she was walking home from a nearby 7-Eleven store around 2 a.m. when three people, two men and a woman, forced her into their car. She said she was kidnapped, robbed and shot before being dumped out of the car on the Kilpatrick Turnpike. She was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay.

Because the two crimes happened near each other, police are trying to determine if they were connected.
