LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A woman leaving a courthouse in downtown Las Vegas was intentionally hit by a car Monday afternoon, according to police.

The incident happened just after 12:45 p.m. as the woman was leaving the Regional Justice Center and walking on the sidewalk near the northwest corner of 3rd Street and Lewis Avenue.

Police said the woman was "intentionally targeted by a vehicle" and this "does not appear to be a random act." The vehicle was driven by a woman, identified as Shaquilla Stafford, in what police called "a pretty bold act," according to investigators.

The vehicle, described as a cream-colored four-door Cadillac sedan, reportedly left the scene. Police tracked down and arrested Stafford several hours later.

The victim was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries, police said.

Police confirmed before the incident occurred, the victim was inside the courthouse attending court proceedings. 

Stafford was charged with battery with a deadly weapon, possession of a gun with altered serial number, and CCW gun, police said. Stafford has posted bond and is no longer in police custody. 

Further details were not immediately released.
