(WJBK) -

Police in Sterling Heights say a woman suffered minor injuries after she was struck with bullets that hit the vehicle she was driving. The woman's husband says the shooting happened while she was out shopping. The gunshots are said to have struck the woman twice.

Police say they are having trouble determining exactly what happened because the couple is Serbian and speaks little English. What they have established is the woman's vehicle has six bullet holes, she was struck twice and hospitalized with minor injuries. Police believe she may have left work in the area of Mound and Hall roads around 3 p.m. Monday and then stopped at several stores before returning home around 9 p.m.

Lt. Kevin Reese tells Fox 2's Amy Lange, "We feel that this is an isolated incident." He maintains Sterling Heights is one of the safest communities in southeast Michigan.
