Police have identified the couple in Monday night’s double killing where a man fatally shot his wife and then himself in their La Habra home.
Juan Gomez and Giselle Perez, both 43, are the deceased, according to La Habra Police Sgt. Jose Quirarte.
The couple’s teen son called 9-1-1 at 8:26 p.m. Monday to report that his mother had been shot in their home in the 600 block of North Fonda Street and that his father was still armed, Quirarte said previously.
Officers forced their way inside, removed the teen and his younger sister from the home and found the woman’s body in a hallway and the man’s body in a bedroom, the sergeant said.
A handgun was also found at the scene.
The couple’s children are now being looked after by relatives.
