The shooting occurred at around 11:40 p.m. in the area of Foster Road and El Moro Avenue.

The female victim told Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigators that she was tailgated for several blocks by a silver car when she heard gunfire and realized that she had been shot in her torso.

The suspect vehicle sped away and the woman was able to drive to Buena Park in Orange County, where she resides, and call 911.

She was taken by ambulance to UC Irvine Medical Center for a single gunshot wound, the sheriff’s department said. She is in stable condition and is expected to survive.

“She was a DoorDashing, a car got behind her and just started shooting,” her friend Beshawn Hayes said.

DoorDash confirmed to CBSLA that the victim was one of its drivers.

“Safety is extremely important to us, and we’re deeply concerned by this report of violence,” a DoorDash spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re actively reaching out to the dasher involved to offer our support, and are engaging law enforcement to assist in their investigation in any way we can.”

Authorities, meanwhile, are investigating whether a similar shooting in South Whittier earlier in the evening is connected.

An LASD lieutenant told CBSLA the shooting occurred at 6:14 p.m. near Telegraph and Colima roads.

Two occupants of a car told deputies that a silver Kia sedan carrying four Hispanic adults rammed into their car before opening fire on them.

The victims’ car was struck by the gunfire, but neither occupant was hit or injured, the lieutenant said.

Prior to the shooting, two male suspects got out of the Kia and bashed the rear windshield of the victim’s car. A female suspect was also recording the entire crime with her phone, the victims told investigators.
