Deputies sought an attacker who shot a woman in the head inside a Cudahy discount store on Sunday, officials said.
The woman was hospitalized in unknown condition, but conscious, following the shooting, which took place shortly after 6:30 p.m. at the Super 98 Cent Store at Atlantic Avenue and Santa Ana Street, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials said.
Officials set up a search perimeter to seek the shooter, described as wearing all-black clothing.
It initially appeared that the victim was an employee of the business, and that the shooting may have stemmed from a domestic dispute, officials said. The investigation remained in its early stages.
