A man approached the woman on the 4500 block of West 4th Street at about 6:45 a.m. and demanded her property, said Sgt. Ed Clark at the LAPD's Olympic station.

When she did not yield, the man pulled a gun and shot her in the leg, he said. The shooter fled the scene on foot. No description was released.

The victim was in stable condition at a hospital, Clark said.
