HACIENDA HEIGHTS (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say a woman was shot in the abdomen at a Hacienda Heights motel.
It happened just after 10 p.m. Sunday at the Vagabond Inn at 1239 South Hacienda Blvd., Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. B. Smith said.
The woman was with a man outside the motel when one of the three suspects fired six rounds from a 40-caliber semi-automatic handgun, then fled in a sedan, Smith said. The woman was taken to a hospital with a wound not believed to be life-threatening, he said.
Investigators say there was two children and another man inside the motel room at the time of the shooting. The children were not injured, and investigators are looking into the possibility that he was the target and the woman was struck by mistake, authorities said.
The motive for the attack was not known, Smith said. The shooters remain at large.
