WAYNESBORO, MS (WDAM) -

Two Wendy's employees were shot after dropping off a deposit at First State Bank late Monday night. The suspect hid behind bushes out of the victim's line of sight before firing shots into their vehicle.

One woman was shot in the back of the head. The other woman was shot in the back. After shots were fired the women drove themselves to the local hospital and were treated for their wounds.

According to Wayne County residents, it was a miracle the woman shot in the head was not killed or seriously injured.

Both women have been released from the hospital, according to Wayne County police. The suspect is at large and an investigation is ongoing.
