WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. -

Police say they are looking for a woman who shot at the owner of a small South Jersey antique shop Thursday.

The shooting happened around 2:30 p.m. at the Antiques Only store on the 200 block of Ganttown Road in Washington Township.

Owner Joy Piddleton tells FOX 29's Shawnette Wilson an angry customer fired into her store after demanding the money she put down on a layaway over a year ago.

"She said I want my money and I said, 'we don't do that' even though she had the gun pointed right at me," Piddleton said.

The gun wielding woman wouldn't back down and was willing to risk it all for a mere $35, Piddleton said.

"So, I gave her $35, not nicely crumpled it up and gave it to her and I pushed the gun out of the way."

Piddleton says the customer wanted interest, so she gave her the money plus $20 in interest and the woman ran off.

Piddleton says she followed, threatening to call police - that's when she says the customer snapped.

"That's when she turned around and shot me."

The woman sped off in a car.

Piddleton says she's lucky to be alive. She now wants the woman caught, but even more than that she says she wants her to get help.

"I want her helped because I think she's insane to do something for $35."

Police say the woman was seen getting into a 2012 Toyota sedan with Pennsylvania license plates that read "JBP 2859."
