The shooting, which was reported at 10:20 p.m., occurred in the 1300 block of Curson Avenue (map) as the woman was returning home, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

She had just parked her vehicle in a carport outside the building when she was approached by a man riding a bicycle, police said.

He confronted the woman and tried to get her purse, but she resisted, according to LAPD.

The man then took out a gun and shot her once in the leg in the upper thigh before taking off on his bike with the purse, police said.

She was rushed to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police have not released a detailed description of the gunman.

The surveillance camera outside the carport was down at the time, and authorities were checking neighboring buildings to see if there was video of the incident or of the man.
