The wife, 47, was in a parked vehicle on Thurston Avenue at about 1:10 a.m. She and her husband were involved in an argument earlier in the evening at a different location.

The woman exited the vehicle and immediately called 911. Police said the device did not ignite and the victim did not sustain any injuries.

Police have opened an attempted murder investigation. There are no arrests at this time.
