North Ridgeville Police Dispatch received a 911 call advising of a female sitting in a car at the intersection of Bender Rd. and Taylor Industrial Parkway yelling for medical help on Thursday, 01/04/2018 at 12:18 pm.
While police were enroute it was learned that the female victim stated that she had been shot and that she was going in and out of consciousness after her car rolled backwards into a snow drift.
