Knoxville Police believe a drug deal gone bad led to a shooting that sent one woman to the hospital this weekend.

Investigators say it appears that the shooting victim and two men were meeting the suspect to buy drugs when the dealer robbed the buyers.  At some point, a gun went off and hit the woman.  She was taken to UT Medical Center to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. 

No arrests have been made.
