Two men were arrested on attempted murder, assault, and weapons charges after a 32-year-old Dedham woman was shot in the head late Friday afternoon as she drove on Veterans of Foreign Wars Parkway, authorities said.

State Police spokesman Todd Nolan said the suspects, identified in a release as 20-year-old Marcel Reed of Roslindale and 21-year-old Andrew Renna of Mattapan, were known to the victim, who has not been named.

The suspects were being held without bail pending arraignment Monday in Dedham District Court on charges including assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and assault with intent to murder.

Police said Friday night that they had questioned three people in connection with the shooting.

Police have said the woman was shot about 4:40 p.m. Friday, when a vehicle pulled alongside her car in rush-hour traffic near the Boston-Dedham line, according to an earlier State Police statement.

Someone inside the car then fired several shots, striking the woman in the head, police said. She was able to drive nearly a mile to a Dedham police station, where she was taken by ambulance to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and treated for injuries that were not life-threatening.

No other information, including any possible motive for the shooting, was released.
