ANTIOCH, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police are investigating after a woman said she was shot at while driving on Interstate 24 in Antioch early Friday morning.  

The incident happened in the eastbound lanes near the Bell Road exit around 4 a.m.  

Metro police say the woman left her job at the Lavo Lounge in Antioch and was soon called by a co-worker who warned someone might be following her. The woman says moments later, a person pulled up and started shooting at her car.

After the shots were fired, the woman veered off the roadway and traveled through the grass and stopped at the tree line, according to Metro police. 

She had to break her window to get out of her vehicle and sustained minor cuts in the process.  No other injuries were reported.

Metro police said multiple bullets penetrated her vehicle.

There is no suspect description at this time.
