It happened around 3:30 p.m. on Thursday in the 2000 block of E. Palmyra Ave., according to Orange police.

A neighbor said she ran outside after hearing gunshots and saw the victim on the sidewalk when the suspect, with a gun still in hand, walked up and kicked her.

The woman said she ran back inside her home and called police.

Officers responding to the call found 44-year-old Jennifer Roberta Solorio on the sidewalk with gunshot wounds, police said.

She was transported to the hospital, where she later died.

Solorio, a mother of four and grandmother of two, separated from Gonzalez two months ago and took out a restraining order Wednesday, according to her family.

Gonzalez was described as 5 feet 5 inches tall and 90 pounds. She was seen wearing black sweatpants and a black sweater.

She was considered armed and dangerous, police said.
