A man allegedly chased his ex-girlfriend in South Los Angeles Wednesday, attacking her in the middle of a traffic jam, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The woman, who was in her 50s, was attacked just before 11 a.m. near East 21st Street and South Central Avenue by her former boyfriend, who opened fire, chased her in his vehicle and then crashed into her car before shooting her, police said.
