A woman was found fatally shot Tuesday west of the Silver Lake area, police said.
Officers sent to an apartment complex in the 500 block of North Virgil Avenue shortly after 6 a.m. on a report of a shooting found the woman dead, Los Angeles police Officer Liliana Preciado said.
Authorities withheld the name of the victim, who was in her 30s, pending notification of kin.
There have been no arrests, police said.
Detectives said the shooting appears to have started with an argument between the woman and a man.
"Right now we are investigating it as a possible domestic dispute between her and her friend," Lt. Joe Losorelli of the LAPD said.
