One live round found on the floor was retrieved by police.

Two hours earlier, police responded to another shooting in Santa Cruz.

Deceased Winston Joseph was said to be a member of the Unruly Isis gang.

Police said Joseph was also shot multiple times as he slept.

The killings took the murder toll to 151.
