ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A 55-year-old woman was injured when she was run over by a car she was hiding under.

Police said officers were on patrol in the 2700 block of Bacon in north St. Louis when they heard gunshots. Police noticed two men running from the scene and were able to arrest one of the men. Another is still sought.

Police said during the course of the investigation, a woman was found injured after being run over by a car. 

The woman told police she hid under the car as the shots were being fired. The owner of the car, who did not know the woman was hiding underneath, drove off, in an effort to get away from the gunshots. That man is cooperating with police.

The 55-year-old woman was hospitalized in critical, but stable condition.
