Woman Fatally Shot in South Los Angeles

Police were still searching for suspects

An argument at a bus stop may have led to the fatal shooting of a woman in South Los Angeles on Sunday, a police sergeant said.

The shooting happened at about 9:30 p.m. on Figueroa at 75th streets, according to Los Angeles police Sgt. Ray Madrid. Preliminary information indicated she may have been involved in an argument with someone at a bus stop, Madrid said.

The woman was shot in the head and transported to California Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, Madrid said.

The suspect or suspects remained at-large, he said.

A tactical alert was issued for the South Bureau of the Los Angeles Police Department due to the shooting, Madrid said, a new policy with shootings of this nature.

That means officers would stay on patrol after their shifts until they were no longer needed, Madrid said.
