Woman shot in Jordan Downs housing projects after argument
The shooting occurred on the 2000 block of East 102nd Street at 12:28 a.m., said Sgt. April Harding of the Los Angeles Police Department's Southeast Station. A group of women were in an apartment getting their hair done when an argument ensued, Harding said.
A woman took out a handgun and shot the victim in the stomach, police said. The victim was taken to a hospital and treated for her injuries. She is in stable condition, Harding said.
The suspect took off on foot and escaped into a nearby apartment on the 2000 block of East 99th Place. Police found the suspect and a man inside.
"The officers did a protective sweep of the apartment," Harding said. "While doing the sweep, they discovered a strong scent of marijuana."
A search uncovered two revolvers, marijuana and paraphernalia, she said. Venita Rosby, 29, was arrested and booked on attempted murder, and Devon Henry, 34, was arrested and booked for marijuana sales.
