A Gainesville woman was shot in the thigh while watching her child’s soccer game in Manassas, police said Monday.
Prince William County police said they were investigating the wounding of the 43-year-old woman, who was injured at about 5:11 p.m. Sunday in the George Hellwig Memorial Park in Manassas.
Police said the woman was sitting in a chair watching her child’s soccer game when she felt “a sharp pain in her right thigh.” The woman went to the hospital, thinking it was a BB bullet or other type of projectile. Doctors instead found a small caliber bullet in her right thigh, possibly a .22 round, police said.
No gunshot was heard and nor were any reports made to police of someone with a weapon at the game.
