A man and a woman were found dead in a Temple City home on Saturday morning, in what may be a murder-suicide incident, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
LASD officers responded to a call about possible domestic violence, at a home in the 9200 block of Pentland Street in Temple City around 7:15 a.m.
When deputies from the Temple Sheriff’s Station arrived, they found a man and a woman with gunshot wounds.
The woman, believed to be in her late 20s, had multiple gunshot wounds, while the man, also in his late 20s, had “an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound,” the LASD said.
A handgun was recovered from the scene.
Both the man and woman were pronounced dead at the scene.
Three children, ranging in age from 5 to 11 years old, were removed from the home. The children were unharmed, according to the LASD. They are believed to be the children of the woman who was killed, and lived in the home.
No other information was immediately available.
