The Pasquotank County Sher­iff’s Of­fice is seek­ing the pub­lic’s help find­ing the per­son who shot a mo­torist from a pass­ing ve­hi­cle near the Queenswood sub­di­vi­sion Monday evening.

Sana Mo­ham­mad Awadal­lah was treated for a gun­shot wound to her leg and re­leased from Sen­tara Albe­marle Med­i­cal Cen­ter, the sher­iff’s of­fice said in a state­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, Awadal­lah, who was driv­ing a 2007 Audi SUV, was turn­ing onto Princess Anne Cir­cle at the Queenswood en­trance from Body Road when she heard the sound of gun­fire and felt some­thing strike her left leg. Awadal­lah ap­par­ently was able to stop her ve­hi­cle and re­port the in­ci­dent to au­thor­i­ties, who said the call came in shortly be­fore 5:30 p.m.

The sheriff's office said Awadallah believes the gunfire came from a passing vehicle, which she described as either a two- or four-door car that was blue in color, possibly turquoise.

It was not clear Awadallah was targeted in the incident.   

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to phone the sheriff's office at 338-2191 or the local CrimeLine at 335-5555. Callers to CrimeLine don't have to provide their inmates.
