A West Covina woman who was on the phone talking with 911 dispatchers about a possible burglary was shot and killed, apparently while the crime was in progress, Los Angeles County Sheriffs’ officials said.
The victim, whom authorities described as a “female Asian adult,” was pronounced dead at the scene.
“It was perfectly obvious that she was defenseless and in absolutely no position to harm these individuals,” said Lt. Dan Rosenberg. “For whatever reason, they elected to shoot her. It was vicious.”
