ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A bullet was found lodged in the dash of a woman’s car after a rolling gun battle in downtown St. Louis overnight.

Early Friday morning, the rolling gun battle began between three vehicles near the riverfront at Leonor K. Sullivan and Biddle, according to St. Louis Police officers at the scene. A woman, who was driving a Maserati, was driving away from the riverfront when her car was sideswiped by a black truck at North Broadway and Cole.

The woman told police that she was parked in a parking lot at Leonor K. Sullivan and Biddle. The victim was with a group of friends when a suspect started firing gunshots at the group. 

The woman got into her vehicle and drove southbound on N. Broadway. Two vehicles driving past her, a black Dodge Ram and a white sedan, fired gunshots at each other. During the shooting, the truck struck the victim's vehicle, causing her to spin out of control and strike another vehicle. 

While the gunshot was struck in her dash, she was not struck. However, she was transported to the hospital with minor injuries, 

The black truck and other vehicles involved left the scene following the crash.

The investigation is ongoing.
