A Paradise Hills woman was shot twice in the leg as she was returning home early Saturday morning by someone who was apparently waiting for her in a car parked across the street, according to police.

The shooting in the 2100 block of Flintridge Drive happened at about 2:20 a.m. Saturday, according to San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims.

The 27-year-old victim was taken by paramedics to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A 36-year-old man who was in the car with her as she returned home was not injured, Heims said.

A dark-colored sedan parked across the street from the victim's house made a U-turn as she was arriving home, then a passenger in the sedan opened fire on the couple, Heims said. The dark sedan was last seen heading southbound on Flintridge Drive toward Potomac Street, Heims said.

The couple was not able to provide officers with a description of the suspects.
