A woman was shot attempting to park her car in East Hollywood this morning. The shooter has not been caught. A woman carrying two passengers was looking for a parking spot near New Hampshire and Melrose Avenues around 1 a.m. this morning, ABC 7 reports. A shooter approached the car, then opened fire. The woman was shot once in the arm. The two passengers were not hit.

The woman drove to a nearby McDonalds parking lot where she met paramedics. She is in serious but stable condition at a local hospital.

Police aren't sure why the shooter targeted the woman, who is in her 40s, but think perhaps he mistook her for someone else. He is also possibly a juvenile, NBC LA reports.
