A woman drove herself to the hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound to the head in what police described as a drive-by shooting.

The 26-year-old woman was sitting in a car in the 3700 block of Arlington Avenue in the Jefferson Park area of Los Angeles at about 3 a.m. when she was struck in the head by a bullet as a suspected gang member fired multiple rounds at a rival driving past the car.

The victim drove herself to an area hospital, where she was listed in stable condition.
