Children flee Temple City home after their mom dies in apparent murder-suicide

In an apparent murder-suicide, a man and woman died of gunshot wounds at a Temple City home Saturday morning, Jan. 1.

The 27-year-old woman was shot multiple times, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Derrick Alfred. The man, 28, appeared to have a self-inflicted head wound.

Both died at the residence, located on the 9200 block of Pentland Street.

Responding to a domestic violence call, deputies arrived around 7:15 a.m. Saturday to find three boys, ages 5 to 11, fleeing the home.

“They ran out to the deputies and were whisked to safety,” Alfred said. “They were not injured – physically, at least.”

The woman was the mother of the three children, Alfred said. The man, who had been her boyfriend for about a year, was not related to the boys.

Investigators have not yet released the couple’s names.
