Police responded around 3 a.m. to reports of shots being fired in the 6800 block of 11th Avenue (map),  LAPD Lt. Gordon Olson said.

The woman was located after being shot "multiple" times in her upper torso area, and she was transported to a local hospital, Olson said.

She was listed in critical but stable condition, Lt. Martinez said.

The woman was alone in a vehicle after returning home from a club when shots were fired, on-scene officials said.

Fifteen bullet holes could be seen in the driver's side of the car and Detective Ernie Mendoza said about 20 rounds were fired.

It was not known if the incident was gang related, Olson said, adding that an initial investigation did not find that the woman had gang ties.

She was believed to have been the only witness to the shooting, and it was not known if there were one or more gunmen.
