Staff reports Updated: March 9, 2010 at 12:00 am

Colorado Springs police said the owner of a central Colorado Springs tailor shop was shot to death Monday afternoon. The victim was identified as 56-year-old Yong Glenn.

A customer of Yong’s Tailor Shop/Cleaners at Maizeland Road and Academy Boulevard found Glenn’s body in the store about 1:20 p.m. Monday with a head injury. An autopsy on Tuesday confirmed that she died of a gunshot wound to the head.

Police said they have no motive in the slaying.

Glenn’s vehicle, a gold 2001 Nissan Pathfinder with Colorado license plate 584-OMI is missing. Police request that anyone who spots the vehicle call police at 444-7000. However, police warn, they should not approach the vehicle.

Phil Allison was a longtime customer of Glenn’s tailoring business, who had dropped off some items to be altered at 12:30 p.m. Monday. Allison said he saw nothing suspicious at the store that day.

“This thing is just so shocking, it’s unreal,” he said. “She always had a smile. She was always friendly.”

Glenn’s death is a second recent blow to her family. Glenn’s husband, Chris, died of cancer in October. The couple met in Korea while Chris Glenn was serving in the Air Force and were married for 30 years. They had two sons and a daughter.

Glenn’s death is the second homicide of the year in Colorado Springs.
