A woman was shot in an apparent road-rage incident in Glendale on Wednesday, police said.

The shooting happened about 5 p.m. at 59th Avenue and Bell Road, Sgt. Scott Waite said.

Responding officers found the woman with a single gunshot wound, he said.

She was taken to a hospital, and her injuries are considered life-threatening, Waite added.

The shooter, also a woman, still was at the scene when police arrived. She was detained by police, Waite said.

Waite said the initial investigation indicates that a road-rage incident between the women began a few miles south of the intersection.

Police blocked off an area near a corner with crime scene tape that surrounded several vehicles.

No additional information was available.
