Los Angeles police say a gunman has killed a woman and critically wounded another before shooting himself to death in a San Fernando Valley apartment.
A report of an assault with a deadly weapon sent officers to an apartment complex in North Hollywood shortly after 10:30 a.m. Monday.
Officer Norma Eisenman says the arriving officers saw a man shooting a gun and then enter an apartment, where they heard a second shot.
A wounded woman was taken from the apartment complex and hospitalized in critical condition.
Eisenman says a SWAT team was called in and tried to rescue another woman at an apartment but she was pronounced dead at the scene along with the gunman, who apparently committed suicide.
There's no word yet on what prompted the violence.
