GLENDALE, Calif. - A documented gang member was arrested in connection with the murder of a 67-year-old woman in Montrose, Glendale police announced on Tuesday.

Hye Soon Oh of Glendale was found shot to death near the garage area of an apartment complex in the 2900 block of Montrose Avenue on the evening of Aug. 8.

Police said Oh had left her place of business in Lynwood and arrived home and parked her vehicle at around 8:40 p.m.

The suspect followed Oh into her garage and robbed her of her personal property. During this robbery, the suspect fatally shot her and fled the scene, investigators said.

Detectives tracked the suspect down using forensic evidence. Devon White, 20, of Lynwood, was arrested in Los Angeles last Thursday.

Police said White is a documented gang member and a previously convicted felon on formal probation.

On Monday, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office filed multiple counts against White, including murder, robbery and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

White was also charged with a special gang enhancement, which alleges the crimes were committed in the benefit or in association of a criminal street gang for the specific intent to promote, further or assist in criminal conduct by gang members, authorities said.

Police are still investigating this case to identify any other suspect or suspects who may have been involved. If you have any additional information, you're urged to contact Glendale police at (818) 548-4911.
