LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A man was in custody today in connection with the shooting death of another man in a Winnetka area home.

Bilal Bin Abdullah, 43, of Lancaster, died at the scene of the shooting, which was reported about 3 p.m Sunday in the 20000 block of Sherman Way, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Tony Ross, 38, was arrested Wednesday in Canyon Country and booked on suspicion of murder, the LAPD reported. Ross was being held on $2 million bail.   

``The motive for the murder remains under investigation,'' the LAPD reported on Thursday.
