PALMDALE (CNS) - A 27-year-old man who was shot to death inside a Palmdale house -- possibly the result of a domestic dispute -- was identified by county authorities Tuesday.

The shooting occurred at 8:57 p.m. Sunday in the 37500 block of Sabal Street, according to the Sheriff's Information Bureau.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner's office identified Carlos Olvera as the victim of the shooting. He was pronounced dead at the scene, sheriff's officials said.

Homicide detectives conducted a crime scene investigation and learned there was a disturbance or argument before the shooting involving residents of the house, sheriff's Lt. Omar Camacho told reporters at the scene.

The suspect, identified as 20-year-old Andrew Plancarte, left the scene after the shooting, Camacho said. A firearm was recovered at the scene.

Anyone with information was asked to call 323-890-5500 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
