Authorities were notified at 10:50 a.m. Saturday of a shooting at residential homes in the village at 23700 Valle del Oro, north of Newhall Avenue, Homicide Lieutenant Hugo Reinaga of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

According to Reinaga, both victims died at the scene. Their identities were not immediately made public.

Witnesses saw the man climb over the fence of the pool and open fire before running to the parking lot of the apartment complex, he said. According to Reinaga, the police stopped a vehicle matching the description given by the witnesses and detained two young men inside. Their identities are not revealed.

Investigators say early investigations show the shooting may be linked to a gang.
