CERRITOS (CBSLA) — A woman was shot as she drove down a Cerritos street early Wednesday morning, but she’s expected to survive.
Deputies responded to Shoemaker Avenue and the 91 Freeway at about 1:30 a.m. on the report of an assault with a deadly weapon, and found a woman who had been shot in her upper torso, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Trina Schrader said.
The woman had been driving south on Shoemaker Avenue near Park Plaza when she heard several popping sounds, then felt pain to her upper torso. She called police with her cell phone.
It’s not clear how many shots were fired, but nearly every window of the woman’s gray SUV was shattered or hit by gunfire.
The woman was taken to a hospital in stable condition. She is expected to survive.
Investigators say it’s not known if the shooting was gang-related. No weapon was recovered.
Anyone with information about this shooting can call the Cerritos Sheriffs station at (562) 860-0044.
