The shooting took place at around 7:22 p.m. in the parking lot of Eddies Liquor at the corner of 20th Street and Pico Boulevard. According to the Santa Monica Police Department, the incident was initiated when the woman, who was in her car, got into a verbal altercation with a bicyclist in the parking lot before the bicyclist drew a gun and shot the car.
