Man and Woman Found Dead in Lakewood

Sheriff's detectives were investigating the circumstances surrounding the deaths of a man and woman in their 20s Sunday in Lakewood.

The bodies were found about 3:25 p.m. in the 5900 block of Pepperwood Avenue, according to Deputy Grace Medrano.

Deputies responded to the location because of a call about a woman screaming for police, according to sheriff Sgt. Aura Sierra.

Once inside they found the man and woman on the floor suffering from gunshot wounds, Sierra said. They were pronounced dead at the scene in what was possibly a murder suicide.

Deputies found there was no sign of a forced entry and they also found a gun at the scene, Sierra said. There does not appear to be any outstanding suspects, Sierra added.

Their names will be withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Anyone with information on these two deaths was asked to call the sheriff's homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500.
