Roommate Believed Responsible for Hollywood Killing NR11008kr

Los Angeles: A man is in custody after holding police at bay for hours after the discovery of a woman shot to death in a hallway of a Hollywood apartment complex. The suspect, Paul Matthew Allee, 32 years of age, is being held for murder on $1 million dollars bail.

On January 4, 2011, at about 3 a.m., Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), Hollywood Area Patrol Officers were called to the 6500 block of Hollywood Boulevard to investigate a “shots fired” radio call. When the officers arrived they found a 33-year old woman suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, lying in a hallway on the 3rd floor of the complex. Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics pronounced the woman dead at scene a short time later.  

A preliminary investigation led officers to the victim’s apartment, where they made contact with Allee, the victim’s roommate. Allee was uncooperative and refused to come out of the apartment and a stand off ensued.  Since Allee was believed to be armed with a handgun, LAPD’s SWAT Unit responded to the location, along with Department Crisis Negotiators. Negotiations continued with the suspect until around 7 a.m. when he was taken into custody after being subdued by a Taser device.  

Officers recovered a hand gun at scene, which is believed to be the murder weapon. It is unclear at this stage of the investigation what the relationship was between Allee and the victim, and the motive has not yet been determined.  

Allee was treated for minor injuries before being booked into LAPD Jail Division on murder charges.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call Hollywood Homicide Detectives Chris Gable or Brett Goodkin at 213-972-2910. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directe to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
