COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A woman is recovering Friday after deputies say she was shot by her boyfriend overnight in northeast Richland County. 

The shooting happened just before 2:00 a.m. Friday on Oak Creek Circle when the 26-year-old woman and her 35-year-old boyfriend got into a fight, according to investigators.

During the fight, investigators say the man pushed the woman to the ground and got into his car, a 2-door silver Cadillac. The woman followed the man to the car and that's when deputies say he fired shots at the woman. One of the shots hit the woman in the lower body, according to deputies.

After the woman was shot, investigators say the man left the area in the silver Cadillac.

The Richland County Sheriff's Department is asking anyone with information about this shooting to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
