The injury is not life threatening, police said, and investigators "question the truthfulness of the story" of where or why she was shot, police spokesman Tony Sheneman said.
Apparently she told police she was shot on the 1300 block of West 12th Street, but police found no crime scene there are anywhere else in town, he said.
Workers at Quik Stop on Lincoln Boulevard near 12th were unaware of any shooting. Police detained a car thought to have been involved, but people in it were unrelated to the crime, officers said.
Police have yet to figure out if gangs were involved.
