WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. -- A woman was shot during an attempted robbery at an ATM early Wednesday morning, the Wheat Ridge Police Department said.

The shooting happened at a drive-thru Chase Bank ATM at West 38th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard about 5 a.m., police said.

The woman got out of her vehicle to withdraw money because the window would not open. As the woman was getting back into the vehicle, the suspect rode up on a bicycle, police said.

The man then pointed a gun at the woman's and tried to rob her before shooting her in the shoulder, police said. The man did not get any money before taking off, police said.

The suspect fled on the bicycle and the woman drove herself to Exempla Lutheran Medical Center to be treated for injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening. Her name and age have not been released.

The suspect was described by police as a black man who was bald and wearing black clothing. A metro-wide be on the lookout alert was issued for the man, who is considered to be armed and dangerous.
