A 70-year-old grandmother is in critical condition after she was shot in the face and her purse stolen Christmas Day.
The woman’s family called police after she went to the store and did not return, KNBC reported.
"(Witnesses) thought it was just a conversation," Inglewood Police Lt. Neal Cochran told KNBC. "They look away for a second, then, they hear a pop which was a gunshot. They look over. They see our victim on the ground, and they see the suspect taking her purse."
The family set up a GoFundMe account to help with medical costs.
