    About five miles away, at 1:29 a.m., a woman said she was walking in the 3600-block of Fordham Road.  She told investigators a dark blue car with three men inside pulled up and asked for directions.  She’d been approaching the car to help when she said a man pulled out a pellet gun, shot her in the shoulder and drove off.  She then flagged down a passing police officer.  Paramedics treated her on the spot.

    Police believe the same suspects are responsible for both shootings. 

    The suspects will face aggravated assault charges once they’re caught.
