INWOOD, Manhattan (PIX11) — A 64-year-old grandmother was hit in the head by a stray bullet and killed in Manhattan Monday morning, police said.

Valeria Ortega was an innocent bystander when she was shot near Dyckman Street and Vermilyea Avenue around 11:30 a.m., officials said. Ortega was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Ortega was on the way to a grocery store when she was shot and killed, her husband said. She lived just a few blocks from where she was killed.

A family friend told PIX11 News that Ortega was a mother of three and a grandmother who was simply trying to enjoy retired life.

A scarf, grocery cart, oxygen mask and spare change could be seen on the ground after the shooting.

“One shot to the head is crazy. And it’s a nice neighborhood. We always walk through here and we never see anything happening over here. It’s crazy,” said Sarah Levine, who lives in the neighborhood.

Police are looking for two men in connection with the deadly shooting. The suspects may have been on scooters and got into a dispute with a car, resulting in the shooting. It’s unclear if the shots came from the men on scooters or the car, police said.

Both suspects were last seen wearing dark-colored clothing. No arrests have been made.
