LOS ANGELES – A woman was fatally shot in a downtown Los Angeles apartment building, and an investigation was underway Tuesday.
The victim died at the scene of the shooting at about 11 p.m. Monday near Sixth and Spring streets, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Information on her identity was not immediately available. No description was released of the suspect.
Investigators believe the woman was a tenant, and she was shot on the 14th floor by someone who knew her, according to KTLA5, which reported that the body was discovered in the lobby.
The apartment building formerly housed the old Hayward Hotel, according to KTLA5. The building was constructed in 1906.
“It’s an uncomfortable feeling that someone could walk in, do that, and then just leave the body there and leave,” a resident identified as Carole B. told the station.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call 877-LAPD-247.
