A man has been detained after allegedly shooting and killing his ex-girlfriend, a CSUN student, and a father in Winnetka, the Los Angeles Police Department said Tuesday.
Brian Anthony Gonzales, 24, was detained somewhere outside of the city of Los Angeles, LAPD Officer Liliana Preciado said. Additional details were not available, and as of 9:30 a.m. Tuesday he had not been booked.
Gonzales was accused of fatally shooting Emily Fox and Jerrad Cardae Scott around 4:20 p.m. Sunday in the 7600 block of Oso Avenue.
Fox had called 911 to report her ex-boyfriend was at her residence and had a gun, but by the time officers arrived, she had been killed, a preliminary investigation showed.
She was a 22-year-old California State University, Northridge student who planned to go into the field of law, neighbor Lisa Lyons told KTLA.
Scott, a resident of La Mesa in San Diego County, left behind a son who was about 1 year old, a friend said.
