2 fatal shots near a pool in the Newhall apartment complex

NEWHALL, SANTA CLARITA (KABC) — A man and a 16-year-old boy were found shot dead near a pool at an apartment complex in Newhall on Saturday morning, authorities said.

Authorities responded to a shooting at the Village Apartment Homes at 23700 Valle del Oro, north of Newhall Avenue, just before 11:00 a.m., Lt. Homicide detective Hugo Reynaga from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told reporters at the scene.

Both victims sustained gunshot wounds to the upper body and were pronounced dead at the scene, Reynaga said. Her identity was not immediately released.

Witnesses saw a man reach over the pool fence and fire off shots before running to the apartment complex’s parking lot, detectives said.

Deputies within minutes stopped a white vehicle matching the description provided by the witnesses and arrested two young men as “persons of interest,” Reynaga said. Her identity has not been disclosed.

Early investigations show the shooting may have been gang-related, authorities said.

Anyone with information regarding the deaths is urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Office at (323) 890-5500. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
