BEVERLY HILLS (CBS) — Beverly Hills mayor Jimmy Delshad says the working theory right now is that publicist Ronni Chasen was targeted.

Chasen had left a Hollywood premiere after-party and appeared to be heading home when she was shot five times in the chest. Her car then hit a light pole.

Delshad said someone probably fired through Chasen’s passenger side window on Sunset Boulevard, based on broken glass that was found at the scene. The shots may have come from a higher angle, like from an SUV.

He says investigators don’t know of any enemies, but are checking Chasen’s computers to see if there were any threats made against her.
