LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police say a gunman who shot and killed a woman outside a Los Angeles bar was likely aiming for someone else.

The coroner’s office said Monday that Siria Portillo Torres died at the scene of the shooting Saturday night at Lupillos in the Harvard Heights neighborhood.

Authorities are searching for the shooter, described by witnesses as a man in his 30s.

Officials say the 36-year-old Torres was outside the bar when she was struck in the head. She staggered inside and collapsed.

Police Sgt. Dino Caldera tells City News Service that Torres was likely not the gunman’s intended victim.
