Los Angeles: On December 11, 2012, about 9:40 p.m., LAPD Rampart Area patrol officers responded to a shooting-related call at 8th and Coronado Streets and discovered a woman on the street who had been shot.

The victim, 51-year-old local resident Lorri Ann Anderson, was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and subsequently transported to a local hospital by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics.  Later at the hospital she was pronounced dead.
