A day after Minneapolis police said a brazen case of road rage apparently led to the shooting of a 39-year-old woman, the department released photos of the Jeep Grand Cherokee allegedly involved in Tuesday's incident.

Authorities describe the color as tan, gold, or ivory and say the vehicle has tinted windows.

Police now say three people were in the Cherokee, not two as originally thought.

The shooting victim was driving south on Hennepin Ave. where road work is underway near the Basilica of St. Mary at about 5 p.m. Tuesday. She told police she honked at the Cherokee after the driver cut off her vehicle. Soon after that the Cherokee slowed and a passenger opened fire with a black handgun, hitting the woman four times.

The woman is expected to recover from her injuries and KARE 11 says she was hospitalized in stable condition.

She told police the driver and shooter were African-American men who looked to be in their 20s and said the shooter had shoulder-length black dreadlocks.

A police spokesman tells MPR News leads from the public have been pouring in since Wednesday – especially through Crime Stoppers, which is offering a reward for information leading to a conviction.
