    San Jose police are alerting the public about a killer on the run considered armed and dangerous after a shooting Monday that left a young woman dead.

    At about 5:05 p.m., officers responded to the 600 block of South 10th Street near San Jose State University on a report of a welfare check. The reporting party said he heard loud bangs coming from inside the residence, police said.

    Upon arrival, officers found a woman, who has since been identified as 20-year-old Myla Dang of Marina, suffering from at least one gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

    Police on Tuesday said they believe Dang and an unidentified suspect knew each other, but the suspect has yet to be located.

    The motive and circumstances surrounding the shooting remain unknown.
