BLOOMINGTON — A woman is in critical condition after she was shot in the head Wednesday night in Bloomington, police said.

Officers with the Bloomington Police Department responded to reports of gunshots around 7:45 p.m. in the area of Crestmont Park near North Illinois Street and North Illinois Court, according to a news release.

Police found a 2015 Jeep Cherokee with a shattered passenger side window where a 29-year-old woman was lying in the backseat with a gunshot wound to her head.

Medics transported the woman to IU Health Bloomington Hospital where she had emergency surgery.
