A pistol- style B-B gun, pellets and C-O-Two cartridges were recovered near an open window. Police say high- powered B-B guns can be very dangerous.

Police say the 52 year old was found dead in a Los Angeles home.
James was best known for the 1981 hit, "Super Freak."
After that, his fame began to fade as he became embroiled in legal and health troubles.
James was convicted in 1993 of assaulting two women. The first attack happened in 1991 when he restrained and burned a young woman with a hot pipe during a cocaine binge at his house in West Hollywood.
He was free on bail when the second assault occurred in 1992. James was sentenced to more than two years in prison. In 1997, he released a new album. A year later he suffered a stroke while performing in Denver.
