The nurse died in a hospital where she had worked for 38 years after police said she had been beaten by a homeless man and died.
Sandra Shells, 70, was injured and died at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center on Sunday.
She was attacked Thursday near Union Station while waiting for a bus to her work.
Police arrested a 48-year-old homeless man, Kelly Bell, in connection with a fatal incident.
The shell is said to have a broken skull after being punched and landed on the ground after 5 am.
A long-arrested bell was found sleeping nearby.
He is currently facing murder after being arrested on suspicion of assault in an unprovoked attack.
Los Angeles Police Department Secretary Michel Moore called the death of Shells a “tragic and meaningless murder.”
He says it is “directly linked to the failure of the country’s mental health resources” and “we can and must do better. This victim is her life for others. We lived. We are in short supply. “
LA County-USC Medical Center said in a statement:
“Sandra Shells will be forever memorable with her compassionate care and unparalleled dedication to patients and the community throughout her 38-year career at LAC + USC.
“Sandra has made a tireless effort to maintain the safety and health of her patients. She is always remembered as a kind, caring, kind and caring nurse who is popular among her colleagues and patients. ..
“There are never enough words to express gratitude for her great efforts and dedication.”
Kathryn Barger, Los Angeles County Supervisor, said:
“Our essential workers, such as nurses in this county, often use public transport at unconventional times and can be an easy prey to violent actors.”
Los Angeles County supervisor Hilda Solis called Shells a “hero” who “helped save countless lives throughout the pandemic.”
