WINNETKA, Calif. - Authorities Monday identified one of two people killed in a shooting that police reportedly believe was committed by the female victim's ex-boyfriend.

Officers sent to the 7600 block of Oso Avenue about 4:20 p.m. Sunday in response to a call reporting an assault with a deadly weapon, said Los Angeles police Officer Aareon Jefferson.

Dead at the scene were a 22-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man identified as Jerrad Scott of La Mesa in San Diego County, said coroner's Lt. Fred Corral. The woman's name was withheld, pending family notification.

Jefferson said he could not confirm media reports that police were looking for the woman's ex-boyfriend as the suspected shooter.

There were no arrests, Jefferson said.
