Hollywood Publicist Shot To Death…

The Hollywood publicist who was fatally shot during an attack on Sunset Boulevard early Tuesday had just attended an after-party for the premiere of the Cher movie “Burlesque,” according to two sources familar with her movements that night.

Ronni Chasen, 64, a longtime Hollywood publicist, was driving her Mercedes Benz when she was shot multiple times, Los Angeles County coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter said.

The sources, who spoke to The Times on the condition that they not be named, said Chasen attended the premiere of the movie as well as a party after the screening. The premiere was at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, and the party was at the W hotel in Hollywood. She lived in Westwood and may have been driving home when the attack occurred.
