Two People Shot Dead in South Los Angeles

Los Angeles: Two people were shot and killed in a South Los Angeles apartment on December 24, 2007.

At around 4:50 p.m., a neighbor made a grim discovery of the lifeless bodies of Shelton Sumerall, 32, and Monica Youngblood, 23, lying on the floor inside of an apartment in the 6700 block of 11th Avenue, and called police.

Apparently, both victims were shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

A witness told investigators that he or she heard an argument and several gunshots in the early morning hours, but did not call police.

No motive has been established for the incident, and detectives have ruled out that the shootings were a murder-suicide.

It is unclear if the victims were involved in a relationship.

Police have no description of the assailants and are still searching for leads.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact South-Bureau Homicide Detectives Regugio Garza or Stephanie Hale at 213-485-1383. During off-hours, or on weekends, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
