MIAMI - A 27-year-old woman was shot Tuesday afternoon in Miami's Liberty City neighborhood, authorities said.

Paramedics transported the victim to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.

Delva said the victim was driving a gray Nissan Maxima when she was shot. Photos from the scene showed the car riddled with bullet holes at an Exxon gas station.
