The shooting was reported at about 11:15 p.m. Sunday at 9708 Beach Street, according to Sgt. James Linder of the Los Angeles Police Department's Southeast Station.
"They heard a noise, went out to investigate and confronted suspects, who shot them," Linder said.
Both victims were in their mid-50s, he said. The man was pronounced dead at a hospital. Reports at the scene indicated the man had a gunshot wound to his chest. The woman had a wound to her arm, Linder said.
As for suspect information, "we have a lot more questions than answers at this point," Linder said.
