Dispute at Baldwin Park AA meeting ends with woman shot in the head

Baldwin Park leads the day’s news:

BALDWIN PARK – An argument between two men during an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting led to a woman being shot in the head Thursday night.

Officers are looking for the shooter.

Baldwin Park police Lt. Joe Bartolotti said the woman is the wife of one of the men.

The shooting broke out about 7:30 p.m. in a church parking lot at Stewart Avenue and Los Angeles Street.

Bartolotti said the men got into a fight during an AA meeting held at the church. He didn’t know what the dispute was about.

The fight spilled into the parking lot. Bartolotti said one of the men pulled out a gun and fired once.

The round didn’t hit the other man who police said was the intended target. The man’s wife who was sitting in a car was shot instead.

Police weren’t sure if the husband was also inside the car at the time of the shooting.

The vehicle rolled across the street and came to rest at the curb.

Bartolotti said the woman was taken to Los Angeles County USC Medical Center where she was listed in stable condition.

The suspect fled the scene. He was only described as a Latino about 20 wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and jeans.
