A woman and man were fatally stabbed Tuesday in Baldwin Park.
The deaths occurred about 11:50 a.m. in the 4200 block of Center Street, according to Deputy Charles Moore of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Headquarters Bureau.
Baldwin Park police officers went to the location for a welfare check and found both victims with upper body stab wounds, Moore said.
They were pronounced dead at the scene, he said.

Breann Tang-Daggi, one of the couple's neighbors, said the discovery was grim.
"People just want to be with their families," she said.
It was unclear who asked for the welfare check.
"At this time a motive for the crime is unknown,'' Moore said.
Sheriff's Homicide Bureau detectives were dispatched to assist Baldwin Park police investigating the deaths.
