LOS ANGELES — A 28-year-old man was sentenced to life in state prison without the possibility of parole for killing his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend at her Winnetka apartment building in 2016.
Brian Gonzalez, aka Brian Hammons, was convicted in February of two counts of murder.
On Jan. 17, 2016, Gonzalez confronted his ex-girlfriend, Emily Fox, 22, and Jerrad Scott, 24, in a hallway at her apartment building, the prosecutor said. While Scott attempted to escape, Fox dialed 911. Gonzalez then caught up to Scott and brought him back at gunpoint to Fox’s location before fatally shooting both of them, according to evidence presented at the nine-day-long trial.
The case was investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department, Valley Bureau.
