Police in St. Paul are trying to find a woman who was shot at in the city early Monday.

The St. Paul Police Department received a "shots fired" call at 4 a.m., with officers sent to the 1500 block of Fellows Lane where a 911 caller said they'd heard 5 or 6 shots outside their home.

Police arrived and found evidence of a shooting, and that 18-year-old Hsa Law Yaw Say was the person who was shot at.

But she wasn't at the scene and police have not been able to find her, prompting a public appeal later Monday morning.

"Say's family is worried, and we want to make sure that she's OK," St. Paul Police Sgt. David McCabe said at a press conference.

Say is described to be 4-foot 11-inches tall, weighs 84 pounds and was last seen wearing a grey or black jacket/sweater. She also has shoulder-length red or brown hair.

A missing person alert has also been sent to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Anyone with information on her location can call 651-266-5650.

St. Paul Police Department is holding a media availability at 12:45 p.m. to discuss the case.
