PRAIRIE VILLAGE, KS (KCTV) -

Police are investigating after a woman was shot in the shoulder during an aggravated robbery.

On Sunday about 1:50 a.m., the Prairie Village Police Department got a call about an aggravated battery. Officers went to the area of 79th Street and Windsor and found the victim.

Because of a high call volume, the Leawood Police Department helped by sending an officer to the area.

The authorities determined that the woman had been shot in the shoulder and was the victim of an aggravated robbery.

The suspects’ vehicle was described as a grey minivan and the suspects were described as white and/or Hispanic.

“We're not certain of the number or the exact genders," said Cpl. Josh Bernal with the Prairie Village Police Department.

The suspects have not yet been found and the investigation is ongoing. Police say they are still looking for the suspect's car. It's described as a gray minivan with an unknown number of people inside.

The victim is being treated at a local hospital. She is expected to recover.

On Monday, investigators were still piecing her story together trying to figure out who did this and why. There's a lot of information investigators know that they're not sharing with the public right now simply because it could jeopardize the case.

What investigators do want people to know without divulging too much is that people who live in the neighborhood do not need to worry about their safety.

However, Rachel Henderson, who lives in the neighborhood, says until she has more answers, she's not taking any chances.

"I won't be letting my kids play outside by themselves in the future. And even just this morning, getting up to let my dog out, I was looking around and I've never felt that way here. It's always been so safe," Henderson said.

Anyone with information about this crime should call the Prairie Village Police Department at 913-642-5151. You can also call the TIPS Hotline 816-474-8477.
