Police seek gunman after woman fatally shot in Glendale

- A Glendale woman, whose killer remains at large, may have been targeted for robbery as she arrived home from work, police said Wednesday.

Hye Soon Oh, 67, was shot around 8:40 p.m. Tuesday in the 2900 block of Montrose Avenue and died at a hospital.

The gunman was seen by witnesses getting into a vehicle, but police did not release a description of the vehicle.

The victim, suffering from a single gunshot wound, was found on the ground next to a parked car inside the carport garage of her townhouse complex, police said.

"At this point of the investigation, detectives believe the victim was likely targeted for a robbery after she was returning home from her place of business,'' according to a  police statement.

Two men who identified themselves as Oh's husband and brother said she ran a business inside a South Los Angeles swap meet, news oulets reported.

Anyone with information on the crime was urged to call the Glendale Police Department at (818) 548-4911.
