Update #LASD Homicide Detectives Responding to Shooting Death Investigation, 16200 block of Newmont, Lancaster

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau detectives are continuing their investigation into the shooting death of a female Hispanic adult.  The incident occurred on Wednesday, February 13, 2019, at approximately 7:30 p.m. at the 16200 block of Newmont Avenue, Unincorporated Lancaster.
 
Detectives have learned that deputies from the Lancaster Station responded to a possible spousal assault/man with a gun call. Upon the deputies arrival they attempted to make contact with the occupants.  They then heard gun shots coming from the residence and then did not hear anything further.  Deputies were not successful after several call-outs and several attempts to make contact with the persons inside. The incident became a barricaded person/s situation and Special Enforcement Bureau responded to assist.

Ultimately deputies entered the residence, where they found a female adult suffering from at least one gunshot wound.  The female victim was pronounced dead at the scene.  They discovered a second person, male adult who was also suffering from at least one gunshot wound.  The male adult appeared to be alive and was airlifted to a local hospital.  The male adult is listed in critical condition.  Deputies rescued an infant from the residence who did not appear to be injured.   

 A weapon was recovered at the scene.  The incident at this time appears to be a murder/suicide.  The relationship of the two persons is not being released at this time. Detectives are not seeking additional suspects.   The investigation is ongoing and there is no further information available.
