A story for every victim

Hye Soon Oh, 67

Hye Soon Oh, a 67-year-old Asian woman, was fatally shot Tuesday, Aug. 8, in the 2900 block of Montrose Avenue in Glendale, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

Glendale police responded about 8:30 p.m. after a report of gunfire in the area, according to Sgt. Robert William, a department spokesman. Officers found Oh on the ground near a vehicle in an open carport area of an apartment complex.

She had a single gunshot wound, according to William. Oh was transported to the hospital where she died at 9:40 p.m., according to coroner’s records.

Investigators believe it was not a random shooting and that Oh was possibly targeted for a robbery as she was returning home from her business, William said.

“Because the crime happened somewhat in a confined area, away from public view, we don’t believe this was a random act,” William said.

Anyone who may have information about the investigation is asked to call the Glendale Police Department at 818-548-4991. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
