    A woman escaped harm Tuesday after another woman fired bullets at her car during a busy afternoon in South Los Angeles.

    Some 12 bullets were fired into the woman's car near Figueroa Street and Vernon Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

    After the shooting, the woman was able to pull into a mall parking and safely stop her car in front of a Rite Aid, before police arrived.

    The shooting took place about a half a mile away from the Rite Aid store.

    A dark car had at least a dozen bullet holes in the front windshield.

    Remarkably, no passersby were hit by bullets.

    The person responsible is believed to be a woman who was behind the wheel of an SUV involved in a personal dispute with the victim, police said.
