Police Seek Information About Shooting

Glendale police detectives are working to determine why a woman was murdered in her apartment over the weekend. They are asking anyone with information to come forward to assist in solving the case.

At about 2:15 p.m. today (1/21), a female acquaintance arrived at the victim’s apartment at 5755 N. 59th Avenue. When she entered the apartment, she found the victim, Cartina Vega (H/F 12/5/1988), who had been shot and killed. The exact time of the shooting is still unknown. An autopsy is planned which investigators hope will help to establish the time of death.

At the time of this writing, detectives are processing the apartment as a crime scene and are in the process of interviewing friends and relatives of the victim in an effort to determine why she was killed as well as who is responsible for her death.
