Chasen, 64, who represented A-list movie stars and promoted some of Hollywood's top films, was driving home Nov. 16 after attending the premiere party for the movie Burlesque when she was gunned down.

Detectives suspect the gunfire came from a SUV or truck pulling alongside Chasen's Mercedes Benz E530. Chasen was stopped at a red light on Sunset Boulevard and Whittier Drive when the shooting occurred.

"After being struck by gunfire...she then made a left turn and drove for approximately a quarter mile before she crashed her car into a pole," the report said.

Detectives say it appears the shooter was an expert marksman.

Investigators told ABC News the security cameras that used to monitor traffic at the intersection where Chasen was shot were removed several years ago to save money.However, Beverly Hills police are seeking for any surveillance video that may provide more clues in solving Chasen's murder.
