BALTIMORE — Police say that a young woman was shot in the arm after she was approached by a group of men.

Once they arrived, the victim was transported to an area hospital, where she is expected to survive.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim was at a gas station in the 5600 block of Purdue when a group of males approached her. One suspect pulled out a handgun and shot the woman in the arm before fleeing the location.
