Up-Date Two: Suspect In Custody

Police function as intended. Not that it could have been especially difficult to find a mentally disturbed homeless woman in an area where the pedestrians are mostly young people in show biz/media & retirees. Yes, homeless people as well, but they do stand out. I s'pose seven hrs. is acceptable, & one never knows whether someone is a kill-crazed loon or a perfectly sweet lady who'd never think of hurting anyone but that rat bastard she plugged, but there was someone w/ a gun & apparently willing to use it loose on the streets for those seven hrs.*
A homeless woman suspected of fatally shooting a homeless man during an argument outside a grocery store near the La Brea Tar Pits was arrested Wednesday evening.

The shooting occurred at about 12:35 p.m. outside the Ralphs market at 5601 Wilshire Blvd., said Officer William Cooper of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Division.

The woman produced a gun during the argument and shot the man, Cooper said.

The woman fled before police arrived, and the man was taken to a hospital, where he died of his wounds.

Police located and arrested the woman near the area of the shooting at about 7:30 p.m., CBS2 reported. Her name was not immediately released.

The man’s name was not released, though he was described as being approximately 45 years old.

*Hell, this reporter was at Wilshire & La Brea, six blocks west of the action, around 1830. Might not've been had I thought/remembered the killer was still on the loose. Or maybe, subconsciously, I knew but just didn't care.
