LOS ANGELES (AP) — The mayor of Beverly Hills says detectives suspect that a veteran Hollywood publicist was shot from another vehicle, possibly an SUV.

Mayor Jimmy Delshad told the Los Angeles Times and KNBC-TV late Thursday that police believe the shooter fired into Ronni Chasen's passenger-side window from another vehicle and not from the street or a sidewalk.

He says detectives believe the bullets came from an SUV because of the high angle of shots fired.

Delshad said police found some pieces of glass — possibly from Chasen's car window — near the shooting site, but found no bullet casings.

Chasen was shot to death early Tuesday in her Mercedes-Benz while driving home from a premiere after-party for the film "Burlesque."

Police say they have no motive and no suspects.
