TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -

Tempe police were looking for two men wanted in connection with the shooting of a woman during an attempted carjacking in Tempe early Wednesday morning.

The woman and another woman were sitting and talking inside a car at an apartment complex near Southern Avenue and McClintock Drive when two men tried to rob them, according to Tempe police Sgt. Jose Montenegro.

One of the suspects shot the woman in the abdomen as she stood to confront the suspects, Montenegro said. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital and was expected to be OK.

Tempe police spokesman Mike Pooley said the suspects fled and have not been located.
