NORWALK, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – Norwalk police are reviewing surveillance video from the Stop & Shop supermarket on Connecticut Avenue where a woman was shot in the stomach Wednesday afternoon.

Police said the woman, 50, is recovering following surgery. The family requested the victim’s name not be released.

The woman had parked her car away from others because she had her dog in the car, police said.

“She just wanted to keep the car shaded and she was approached as she was getting back in the car,” Cotto told Schneidau.

The gunman stole some expensive jewelry the woman was wearing before shooting the woman in the stomach with a small-caliber gun, police said.

The woman was confronted by a man who took a gun from his boot as she was returning to her car after grocery shopping, police said.

The Greenwich woman was conscious and alert when paramedics arrived, police said. The victim was taken to Norwalk Hospital.

No arrests have been made in the case.
