Gladis Maribel Sicajan-Albir, a 39-year-old Latina, was shot and killed Friday, Jan. 8 in the 3300 block of James M. Wood Boulevard in Koreatown, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 6:30 a.m., officers were called to a report of a shooting and found Sicajan-Albir unresponsive in the front seat of her four-door sedan, said Lt. John Radtke with the Los Angeles Police Department.

Sicajan-Albir was pronounced dead at 7:22 a.m., according to coroner’s records.

A witness told police that the gunman fled north on South Harvard Boulevard, Radtke said. About 20 minutes later, officers received another call of a shooting at South Harvard and Wilshire boulevards.

When officers arrived, they found Sicajan-Albir’s estranged husband with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Sicajan-Albir and the man, a 35-year-old Latino, had a history of domestic violence. Radtke said there was an active restraining order against the man to stay away from Sicajan-Albir, and he was on probation for a previous domestic violence incident.
