HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A woman was shot in the lower back Tuesday afternoon at a local car wash.

According to police, it was the result of a drug deal gone bad at a car wash on Pulaski Pike just south of Winchester Rd.

Police say the 25-year-old Brittney Nicole Hereford was shot after trying to buy illegal drugs. Hereford entered a black SUV in order to purchase drugs.  A man pulled out a gun and demanded Hereford’s money.  She refused, ran from the car, and was shot. She was transported to Huntsville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are currently looking for the black SUV in connection with this shooting.  The victim was in the black SUV with three other people before she was shot.
