Woman in Bronx shot in stomach; no arrests made

ALLERTON, Bronx (WABC) -- Police are investigating after a 58-year-old home health care attendant was shot in the stomach Wednesday in the Bronx.

The woman was shot near the intersection of Bronxwood Avenue and Pelham Parkway North just before 5 p.m.

Sources tell Eyewitness News the victim had just gotten off a bus and was walking in the area when she was struck.

The bullet went through a kidney and lodged in her back.

She is critical but stable at Jacobi Medical Center, and is expected to survive.

Surveillance video recovered by police shows the woman walking near her Bronx home. Suddenly, the video shows her falling without any obvious interaction with anyone in the minutes leading up to the shooting.

Detectives do not know if she was the intended target, or was caught in the crossfire from an unrelated shooting.

No motive has been identified and no arrests have been made.
