Police are looking for a man who drove off in a woman's car in Monroeville and then shot a person in Wilkinsburg, police said Tuesday.

The man approached a woman at about 7:30 p.m. Monday in the parking lot outside of Cedar Ridge Apartments, off Stroschein Road, Monroeville police said. The victim told police that the man pushed her to the ground, took her keys and drove off in her 2005 white or silver Chevy Cobalt. The vehicle reportedly was involved in a drive-by shooting early Tuesday in Wilkinsburg, Monroeville police Chief Doug Cole said.

The shooting victim is expected to recover, police said.

Monroeville police are investigating the carjacking, while Allegheny County police are investigating the shooting, Cole said.

The car has an Ohio license plate, FHC2.
