A Queens woman was tragically shot down recently while shopping in a Long Island City pharmacy.

Guimmia Villia, 32, was taken to Mt. Sinai hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

The suspect Alex Figueroa, Villia’s ex-boyfriend, was later found dead by police with a self-afflicted gun shot wound to his head.

According to a Daily News report, Villia had filed two orders of protection against Figueroa and was confronted by him at her job last week. Figueroa and Villia had two children together.
