38-year-old man arrested in deadly Winnetka shooting

A suspect has been arrested following the deadly shooting of a  Lancaster man in the San Fernando Valley over the weekend.

Officers with the Los Angeles Police Department were called to a Winnetka home in the 20000 block of Sherman Way, located near the intersection of Winnetka Avenue at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 27. Once officers arrived, they discovered a man identified as Bilal Bin Abdullah, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.  He was then declared dead at the scene by paramedics.

LAPD officials said the preliminary investigation reveals Abdullah was confronted in an upstairs bedroom after a man entered the home. Several shots were heard, and the suspect left the scene in a red or maroon sedan. 

LAPD homicide detectives obtained an arrest warrant for 38-year-old Tony Ross, the identified suspect in the shooting. Ross was arrested on Nov. 30 in the Canyon County area for murder.

He is being held at the Van Nuys Jail on a $2,000,000 bail.
