CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Three juveniles are in custody in connection to a shooting in June that left a woman with a wound to her head.

Authorities hope to seek adult charges against the juveniles.

A Cape Girardeau woman was shot in the head on June 29.

The shooting happened on South Hanover Street.

Police say someone fired several shots from an SUV as it drove past a group of women standing in front of a house.

At one time, authorities offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the shooting.

The Cape Girardeau/Bollinger County Major Case Squad found two eye witnesses after the shooting of Paige Smith in the 400 block of Hanover Street on Monday.

According to the Cape Girardeau Sheriff's Department, one witness, Devon "Day Day da Kidd" Smith, was found and interviewed.

Deion "Lester" Phillips, of Cape Girardeau was located and interviewed as well.

According to the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Department, they were looking for the men for questioning.

As of July 1, police say the condition of the victim had not changed.

Police responded to the drive-by shooting at 2:46 p.m. on June 29.

Police say the woman was on the porch when a vehicle passed by. Several gunshots were reportedly fired from the vehicle.

According to police, the woman, a Cape Girardeau resident, was shot once in the head. Police say no one else was injured.

An ambulance took the woman from the scene to an area hospital with serious injuries.

The other two women gave descriptions of the suspects to police.

Police say the gunshots were reported to have come from an "SUV-type vehicle." Earlier they had varying descriptions by witnesses, including two different colors of the vehicle.

Neighbors say they thought they heard fireworks before seeing a woman on the ground.

There were more than 10 bullet casings marked by police at the scene.

Police continued to block off more of the street as more casings were found.

The case is currently being investigated by Cape Girardeau Police Department, having previously been handled by the Cape Girardeau Major Case Squad.
