CHESTERFIELD, Va. -- A woman in her 20s is left with non-life-threatening injuries following a shooting at a Chester apartment complex.

Police say the shooting happened in the parking lot of an apartment complex off of Martingale Road around 5:45 on Monday afternoon. They report that dozens of shots were fired.

A woman in her 20s was injured by the gunfire when she was sitting inside her apartment, according to the woman's mother. The woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for a graze wound to the head, according to officials.

The woman's mother said that activity like what happened on Monday night has been going on for a couple of days.

Those on the scene at the time of the shooting gave police a good description of the suspect vehicle which was pulled over by police after a short pursuit.

Officers attempted to stop the suspect vehicle but the vehicle refused to stop, resulting in a vehicle pursuit. The suspect vehicle stopped around Jefferson Davis Highway and West Hundred Road, let out several passengers and then fled again.

The suspect vehicle crashed in the area of 1300 West Hundred Road and the driver was taken into custody after a short foot chase.

Several people have been taken into custody, including a juvenile. At this time, charges for the suspects are pending.
