Burbank police are working to determine who dropped off a 23-year-old woman suffering from a gunshot wound at the emergency room of the Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, according to LA Now. The woman died on arrival to the facility.

Prior to arrival at the hospital, someone "contacted the hospital emergency room about 4 a.m.," to say they would be arriving with the victim, and "hospital personnel got the woman out of the car before the driver drove off," reports MyFoxLA.

The woman "was dropped off in a black pick-up truck at the Buena Vista entrance," to the hospital, notes KTLA. The vehicle seems to have been abandoned there, and was being checked over for evidence. Authorities are also working on the shooting case, but do not believe it was gang related.
