A woman walking with children on the campus of a Rubidoux elementary school was shot in the back, but didn't realize it until she checked into a hospital, authorities said today.
The incident happened around 8 p.m. Tuesday at Ina Arbuckle Elementary School, in the 3600 block of Packard Avenue, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff's Sgt. Sergio Rodriguez said a 37-year-old woman and several children were leaving the school playground when the woman felt a sudden sharp pain in her back.
