MONTEBELLO, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County sheriff's officials are seeking a suspect who they say shot his estranged wife outside the restaurant where she works.
A sheriff's statement says 29-year-old Arthur Andrew Andrade of Tustin ambushed his wife Soria Esperanza in the parking lot of the Mexican diner in Montebello, arguing with her before shooting her several times in the upper body. The statement says Andrade, a 6-foot-tall Hispanic man with black hair and hazel eyes, fled in a dark-colored vehicle.
Esperanza was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sheriff's Lt. John Corina tells the San Gabriel Valley Tribune the couple was in the process of getting divorced, and she had gotten a restraining order against him.
