Police continue to look for the man who shot a 50-year-old Greenwich woman in the stomach during a robbery in the parking lot of the Stop & Shop on Connecticut Avenue in Norwalk on Wednesday and said there is no surveillance video yet that is worthwhile to release.
The woman, whose name has not been released, had dropped her 15-year-old son off at a bowling alley and was in the plaza to go shopping, police said.
She had parked in the back of the parking lot near trees, away from other cars, apparently to leave her Golden Labradoodle in the shade rather than the sun, according to police, and the shooter approached as she was getting into her vehicle.
He reached in and stole something, according to police.
Whether the woman was shot during a struggle with the shooter is not known. The man fled on foot.
The woman was conscious when emergency crews arrived, described the shooter and went to a hospital, where she underwent lengthy surgery.
Norwalk police said they are pursuing leads and Lt. Timothy Murphy said investigators are viewing video from several sources.
Officials said they do not have a suspect, but have identified persons of interest and vow to bring the person to justice.

Police said the dog is OK and at animal control temporarily.
