A man and a 16-year-old boy were found shot dead next to a swimming pool in Santa Clarita on Saturday morning, authorities said.
When Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene at about 11 a.m. on the 23700 block of Silverado Street, they found the victims, both of whom had been shot in the chest, the sheriff’s department said in a press release.
The names of the victims were not released.
A witness told deputies that a man ran from the scene and got into a white car, which sped away.
Minutes later, deputies stopped a car matching the witness’ description and arrested two men as “persons of interest,” according to the press release.
Detectives believed the shooting was gang-related, the press release said.
Anyone with knowledge of the shooting is asked to contact Homicide at (323) 890-5500.
