I got a call this morning from a man who identified himself as Albert Lee of San Francisco.
Lee said he is the boyfriend of an Alhambra woman who was shot in the face Sunday night at a home in the 800 block of Garfield Avenue.
He told me he was attempting to contact the Alhambra police department after reading about his girlfriend on the Internet.
“I always call her, she wanted me to call her,” Lee said. “I wanted to tell her that I found a house for us in El Monte.”
Lee said the woman had been beaten outside the Staples store in Alhambra about 30 days ago by four men. That case remains open, Lee said.
He did not know whay the woman was targeted.
Here’s a section of the Pasadena Star-News story that appears online:
The woman was shot once in the face and once in leg, and she is currently recovering at a hospital, according to Det. Kevin Laing.
“She was shot somewhere near her front porch area of her residence,” Sgt. Kean Oda said. “That’s the only other information that we know.”
There are currently no suspects, and Laing said he expects the woman to survive.
“We’re waiting for her to wake up,” said Laing.
The woman is in stable condition and detectives hope to interview her tomorrow, Oda said. Police will not release the woman’s name until she is interviewed, he said.
