FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A woman has been hospitalized after being shot in the head in central Fresno.

Police say the woman was sitting in her car in the area of Olive and Glenn just before 8 pm when the shooting happened.

The bullet grazed the victim's head.

The victim was conscious and breathing and she's been taken to Community Regional Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

As first responders worked on the victim, they had to arrest a man who tried getting to her.

"While they were trying to attend to the female, a male subject we believe is related to the female tried interfering with the officers," said Fresno Police Lt. Israel Reyes. "We did have to subdue the male since he was interfering with life-saving efforts. He was arrested for resisting arrest."

Police are not sure why the man tried interfering with their first aid.

Officers do not have a suspect description for the shooting at this time and are still investigating a possible motive.
