Jerrad Cardae Scott, a 24-year-old black man, was shot and killed Sunday, Jan. 17 in the 7600 block of Oso Avenue in Winnetka, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
Officers responded to a call of an assault with a deadly weapon about 4:30 p.m. at a home, said Officer Aareon Jefferson, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.
Inside, officers discovered Scott and his girlfriend, Emily Anna Fox, 22, with gunshot wounds. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators learned that Fox had called 911 and said her ex-boyfriend was at the home with a gun.
On Jan. 19, Brian Anthony Gonzales, also known as Brian Hammond, a 24-year-old black man, was arrested aboard a bus in Southern California, police said.
LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, who learned of the arrest while sitting in the weekly Police Commission meeting, described the double killing as “jealousy gone way wrong.”
“That’s a very, very sad case,” the chief said.
