A man was found dead with an apparent gunshot wound Saturday morning in Palmdale, hours after gunfire erupted at a nearby party.

The victim was identified as Oliver Adams, 22, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said. Adams was last seen running away when someone fired shots at about 12:30 a.m. on Saturday.

A woman unrelated to the party or the shooting walked out into her backyard about 10 a.m. and discovered the body, police said. Her home was at Hillcrest Drive and Avenue S-4 (map), about a block away from where the party was held.

A motive for the shooting wasn't immediately known.
