A father and son, identified as Jose Romo Guerra, 36, and Michael Romo Sandoval, 10, were found dead in Chatsworth on Tuesday night. Police believe it was a possible murder-suicide.

Police shut down a stretch of 21000 blocks of Plummer Street where they were investigating the incident reported at 8:30 p.m.

Officers responded to a radio call of a possible attempted suicide, said LAPD Deputy Chief Alan S. Hamilton. When police arrived, they saw the bodies and notified homicide detectives.

Police confirmed that when the bodies were first discovered they were inside a gray Honda Civic. By the time police arrived on the scene, the bodies had been moved from the car.

They were first discovered by a known relative.

Hamilton said that authorities suspect a murder-suicide, but it was too early to tell late Tuesday.

The bodies of a man and a boy were found dead near a school in Chatsworth.
