SANDY SPRINGS, GA (CBS46) -

Sandy Springs officers have found a Chevrolet Camaro taken during a carjacking early Wednesday morning in which a woman was shot.

It happened just after midnight at the Lodge at Sandy Springs Apartments in the 6900 block of Roswell Road.

According to Sgt. Forrest Bohannon, a spokeswoman for the Sandy Springs Police Department, a man and a woman were in the parking lot near the vehicle when two men approached. There was a struggle over the car, and the woman was shot in the abdomen.

Police have identified the gunshot victim as Monique Lassiter, 27, of Sandy Springs. She is in stable condition at North Fulton Hospital.

The man was not hurt. Neither victim got a good look at the armed men, police said.

"They had their faces covered at the time of the carjacking, both with either red T-shirts or red bandanas," said Bohannon.

Detectives are searching for the two suspects in the shooting. They have not yet identified the suspects.
