Police: Chasen killing a 'robbery gone bad'

GUN IN SMITH SUICIDE MATCHES CHASEN WEAPON



The killing of Ronni Chasen is shaping up to be the tragic story of a chance encounter between two people from very different worlds -- a publicity maven surrounded by the glamour of showbiz and a career criminal who found himself in increasingly desperate straits.
Beverly Hills police said Wednesday that Chasen's slaying appears to have been a random "robbery gone bad."
At a news conference at Beverly Hills Police Dept. headquarters, police said the preliminary
ballistics tests indicate that the gun used in the suicide last week of Harold Martin Smith matches the weapon used in the Chasen slaying.
"We believe he acted alone," Beverly Hills police chief Dave Snowden told reporters.
Based on the caliber of the gun and the accuracy involved, Sgt. Mike Publicker added that law enforcement officials concluded the Nov. 16 shooting was most likely a "random act of violence" and was "not a professional hit."
The first official word on details of the case may quiet the storm of speculation about possible motives for the Nov. 16 murder that stunned showbizzers. Chasen was found with multiple gunshot wounds in her Mercedes-Benz near the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Whittier Drive, a residential area of Beverly Hills.
Smith committed suicide in the lobby of the Harvey Apartments in Hollywood on Dec. 1 as Beverly Hills police attempted to serve him with a search warrant, shooting himself in the head as officers approached.
The focus on Smith as the shooter casts the case as a Raymond Chandler-esque tale of L.A. crime, as Chasen appears to have been killed while on her way home from red-carpet duty at a movie premiere by a man who lived in a low-rent hotel in a seedy part of Hollywood.
