Glendale, CA. – The Glendale Police Department is actively investigating a fatal shooting of a La Crescenta woman which occurred on August 8, 2017 at approximately 8:40 PM in the 2900 block of Montrose Avenue.

Officers responded to the scene after calls of a shooting being heard from an apartment complex. A woman was found down next to a parked vehicle inside the carport garage of the apartment complex. She was transported to the hospital where she was pronounced deceased from an apparent single gunshot wound. The victim has been identified as 67 year old Hy Soon Oh who was a resident of the building.
