At approximately 9:40 p.m. on Dec. 11, LAPD Rampart Division patrol officers responded to a shooting call and discovered a woman on the street who had been shot.
The victim, 51-year-old Lorri Ann Anderson, was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and subsequently transported to a local hospital by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
