Woman Shot at Boyle Heights ‘Food4Less’
(CNS) – A woman in her 30s was shot in the leg in a Boyle Heights supermarket Tuesday night after getting into an argument with another woman who was part of a group of four people.
The other woman was with another woman and two men, all in their 20s, in the Food4Less market at First and Mott streets around 8:30 p.m., said Los Angeles police Officer Bruce Borihanh of the Media Relations Section.
During the argument, one of the men intervened and shot the victim in a leg, Borihanh said. All four suspects ran out of the store, got into a car and fled, Borihanh said.
Officers from the Hollenbeck Station responded, spotted the car and attempted to pull it over, Borihanh said.
The vehicle stopped and the suspects ran, but the two men were quickly taken into custody after a short foot chase and the women were also later apprehended, Borihanh said.
The victim was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Borihanh said.
