Sheriff's Deputies locked down the Equinox gym on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood this evening after a female was found inside not breathing. It was unknown if her condition was caused medically or by another person, but deputies treated the area as a crime scene, according to Sgt. Z. Conner of the West Hollywood station. The unidentified woman was transferred to Cedars-Sinai in unknown condition. One person Twittered that a woman may have died in the bathroom, but officials could not confirm that.

Conner said they received a call shortly before 7 p.m.

Update: The gym has been reopened for business, according to an Equinox manager, who said the woman was found in the first floor bathroom. KCBS tweeted that she died in the bathroom from a seizure.
