Police searching for the killer of a woman who was shot & killed at a barbecue stand

- A double shooting today at a barbecue stand outside an auto parts store in Harbor City left a woman dead and a man wounded.
  
The gunfire erupted about 1:50 p.m. in the 1300 block of the Pacific Coast Highway, in the parking lot of a Pep Boys store, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
  
The unidentified gunman, who remains outstanding, fired shots toward the Wheaton's Eatins barbecue stand, fatally wounding a woman who worked there and wounding another man in the arm, police told reporters at the scene.
  
"He didn't seem to be aiming at one particular person, but just shooting towards the pop-up tents where the barbecue was and where there were customers were gathered," LAPD Detective David Cortez said.
  
The gunman, who witnesses said had a bandana or mask covering his face, chased the male victim before fleeing the scene.
  
The unidentified victims were taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where the woman died and the man was in stable condition, according to Officer Jane Kim of the LAPD's Media Relations Section.
  
Kim said it's unknown if the suspect knew either victim.
  
Police are checking to see if the shooting was caught on surveillance video.
