Investigators have seized computers from the business of a prominent Hollywood publicist who was shot to death in her car in Beverly Hills on her way home from a movie premiere.

Police hauled the equipment from Ronni Chasen's business, Chasen and Co., about 12 hours after she was gunned down early Tuesday. There are no suspects or motive yet for the crime.

The 64-year-old publicist, who promoted such Oscar winners as "Driving Miss Daisy," was shot several times in the chest in her Mercedes-Benz near Sunset Boulevard. Her car then hit a light pole and she died before dawn at a hospital.

The killing took place only hours after she had attended the premiere of the movie "Burlesque," which she had a hand in promoting.
