Highland Park — A suspect remains at large after shooting an elderly woman in the back early Tuesday night.
Officers responded to the 6300 block of Aldama Street after receiving a call reporting 3 to 4 shots fired in the area at about 7:15 p.m.
The victim, a woman in her 60s, was found at the scene with a gunshot wound to her upper back, said Sgt. James Zboravan with LAPD’s Northeast Division.
The suspect shot the victim as she was walking on the street. It is unclear if the shooting was gang related and if the victim was an unintended target, Zboravan said.
Police described the suspect as a male Latino, 5-feet, 11-inches tall with a medium build. He remains at large, Zboravan said.
The victim was transported to the hospital and is in stable condition.
