The Minneapolis Police Department has released photos of the car belonging to a 39-year-old woman who was shot four times last Tuesday in what police are describing as brazen case of road rage.

The police purposely tried to make the victim's car unidentifiable in the photos to protect her anonymity for safety concerns.

They are still on the hunt for the vehicle belonging to the shooter, which they believe is a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.

"Whereas we have received a high number of tips through CrimeStoppers, we continue to ask help from the public in solving this case,"John Elder, a spokesman for the Minneapolis Police Department, told BringMeTheNews on Sunday.

The victim was shot in the arm and the abdomen, but is believed to be in stable condition.

She told police that the driver and shooter were African-American men who looked to be in their 20s, and the shooter had shoulder-length black dreadlocks. At first, police thought there were only 2 men in the jeep, but now they say that there were three.

The victim was driving southbound on Hennepin Ave. where road work is underway near the Basilica of St. Mary at about 5 p.m. Tuesday during commute traffic. 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.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 612-692-8477 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
