A 51-year-old woman is recovering after a bullet ripped through her Montecito Heights house and hit her in the leg.

The incident happened on the 1900 block of Mosher Avenue at about 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police say the woman's pit bull was also wounded in the shooting. There was no word on the dog's condition.

Witnesses said they saw a man running away from the scene, but authorities have not yet arrested anyone.

Investigators think the shooter may have been aiming at the dog and not targeting the woman.
