A woman was shot during a purse snatching in a Stockton Costco parking lot Tuesday night, Stockton police said.
The woman, who is in her 50s, was taken to the hospital to get treatment for non-life threatening injuries.
Police said two men tried to steal the woman's purse around 7:30 p.m. in the parking lot on the 1600 block of E. Hammer Lane. The woman held onto her purse and one of the suspects shot her, police said.
The suspects then drove away from the scene, headed northbound on Montauban Avenue.
The gunman was described as a light-skinned black man in his 30s, 5 feet 9 inches tall, with a mustache and curly hair. He was last seen wearing a button up long sleeve shirt and blue jeans.
There was no description for the second suspect.
The vehicle the suspects drove away in was described a 2006 sliver 2-door Toyota.
