An elderly Gardena woman was sitting in her den when she was hit by a bullet fragment.

The bullet fragment came through a window and hit the 74-year-old woman in the foot. Fortunately, the injury was not serious. The incident happened on the 15000 block of Clymar Avenue.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, there were 93 incidents of possible discharging of firearms in its patrol area between 8 p.m. Monday to 4 a.m. Tuesday.
