A woman was shot by her boyfriend as they were driving Thursday afternoon in the southwest part of Wichita; the 34-year-old woman was driving a Chevy Suburban, and her 28-year-old boyfriend was in the passenger seat. She tried to exit the vehicle near Mt. Vernon & Water.

There was a disturbance inside the car and the man pulled out a handgun, shooting the woman twice. He then left the injured woman behind, driving away in her car; that car was later located not far away, in the 2200 block of S. Market.

The woman was hospitalized in serious condition with injuries to her chest and elbow; she is expected to survive.

Police are looking for the suspect, 28-year-old Eli Mendoza; he's considered to be armed and dangerous.
