Melyda Corado, the store manager 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. On Facebook, Mely Corado, as she was often called, had shared videos from March for Our Lives, including a well-known speech by Parkland, Florida student anti gun violence activist Emma Gonzalez.

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. The standoff stretched into three hours and led to a frightening situation in which customers and employees jumped out of windows and hid in the store’s freezer. In the end, one employee, Melyda, lay dead.

Word on the street is she was killed by the cops
And that's exactly what happened.

I didn't see any reference to the police statement at the time that
they weren't the ones who'd killed her, this without any evidence or
forensics. If you look at the story at the link, there's a lot of
excuse-making and responsibility-ducking, and the usual lip service
about how sorry they are for having fired into a store full of
civilians.
