Melyda Corado, who worked at the Trader Joe’s in Silver Lake, was the female victim who was shot and killed after a suspect burst into the store, leading to a tense three-hour standoff that involved multiple hostages.

The still unidentified suspect was accused of shooting his grandmother and girlfriend before leading police on a chase that culminated at the Trader Joe’s on the evening of July 21, 2018.

In the end, one employee, Melyda, lay dead.

“The destructive and tragic consequences one person can inflict are at the forefront of our minds tonight, as is the valor & dedication of our men & women who strived to protect so many innocent people-Our thoughts, prayers & hearts are with all effected by this senseless incident,” LAPD Chief Michael Moore said.
