Suspect sought in fatal shooting of 66-year-old woman in Lynwood
Authorities are searching this morning for a suspect who fatally shot a 66-year-old woman during an apparent robbery at a check-cashing business she owned in Lynwood.
Esperanza Serrano of South Gate was killed shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday at Century Check Cashing on the 3000 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Serrano, a grandmother, was at work and died at the scene, said Det. Mark Lillienfeld.
"It’s a tragic event," he said. "We just don’t have anybody who has seen a suspect, or saw anyone running away or getting in a car."
No video was captured near the scene, Lillienfeld said. Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the sheriff’s homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500.
