A night spent partying on Halloween turned deadly for a man and woman in Inglewood.Police said the two were standing outside a Halloween house party in the 400 block of North Edgewood Street when a car drove up and started shooting at around 1 a.m.

A single bullet hit 25-year-old Antonio Tavarez in the head and another bullet hit 23-year-old Claudia Marroquin in the chest. Both were taken to hospitals where they were pronounced dead.

"From information obtained from the scene, all we have is a gray vehicle drove by the location, opened fire and continued on out of the area," said Sgt. Michael Bolliger of Inglewood Police.

Investigators said the shooting may be gang related. No suspect description was released.

Detectives have very little to go on in this case, and they are asking for the public's help as the search continues for the killer or killers who gunned down that young couple.

Police asked anyone with information to call Inglewood police at (310) 412-5246.
