LYNWOOD (CNS) - The sheriff's department today corrected the name of a 56-year-old Pasadena woman who was fatally shot during a robbery inside the Lynwood liquor store she owned with her husband.

Sheriff's homicide detectives were sent to the 11000 block of South Alameda Street, near 110th Street and the border with Watts, at 4:18 p.m. Thursday, said Deputy Kim Manatt of the Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau.

Sun Hee, who was also known to her customers as Silvia Cho, died at the scene, according to Manatt and coroner's Chief Craig Harvey.

Century station deputies had responded to the location after a 911 call was made regarding a person who needs medical care, Manatt said. The deputies
discovered Hee had suffered multiple gunshot wounds to her upper chest during a robbery.

Hee -- the mother of two children -- owned the liquor store with her husband. She was pronounced dead at the scene, Manatt said.
