ST. LOUIS — A man was taken into custody after a woman was shot while driving in south St. Louis Wednesday night.

The woman told police she was driving near S. Broadway and Lemp when she heard gunshots and then felt pain to her arm. She drove home, which was nearby, and called for help.

Neighbors told 5 On Your Side they saw her arm wrapped and pointed our crew to a car with a bullet hole in the driver's side door. 

"It kind of put fear in me," neighbor Jamissa Easterling said. "It's quiet on this street. I would have never thought this lady would get shot up the street from her residence."

Officers took a 24-year-old man into custody and a gun was recovered, they said. 

Police have not said if the two knew each other. As of Thursday evening, they said no charges had been filed.
