Los Angeles police believe a jealous boyfriend shot dead his ex-girlfriend and a man she was with at an apartment building in Winnetka.

Investigators are asking for the public's help to track down 24-year-old Brian Anthony Gonzales, also known as "Brian Hammond."

He is described as an African-American male, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing around 160 pounds.

Patrol officers received a call around 4:20 p.m. on Sunday about an assault with a deadly weapon in the 7600 block of Oso Avenue in the Winnetka area.

When officers arrived, they found a 22-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man unresponsive on the third floor of the apartment building, suffering from gunshot wounds.

Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

The male victim was identified by Los Angeles County coroner's officials as Jerrad Scott of La Mesa in San Diego County. The female victim's identity was not released.

Investigators believe Gonzales is the female victim's ex-boyfriend. Authorities said the female victim dialed 911 and told the dispatcher that her ex-boyfriend was at her residence with a gun.
