INDUSTRY (CBSLA.com) — Police say a woman was shot to death as she left her job at a restaurant and walked to her car.
The shooting was reported at 10:23 p.m. Monday in the 17600 block of Castleton Street, outside a Golden Corral store where the woman worked, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
When deputies arrived, they found the woman suffering from at least one gunshot wound to the torso. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The back window of her car had been shattered due to being shot several times.
The woman, who was in her 20s, was walking to her car with a friend when a man drove up in a van or SUV. The witness told police the man had a previous relationship with the woman based on what he said to her before the shooting.
The witness was not hurt.
The woman had been working in Golden Corral’s bakery for about three weeks.
“It’s really bad, it’s somebody’s child,” Golden Corral employee Fausto Oliver said. “I feel really hurt for her family, and it’s hard — it’s hard to find words for them in a moment like this.”
Police say they will review security video from the many cameras around the restaurant.
