3 found fatally shot at suburban LA County home

HACIENDA HEIGHTS, Calif. - Authorities say three people have been found fatally shot at a home in a suburb east of Los Angeles.

Sheriff's officials say deputies were called to the house in the Hacienda Heights area Wednesday morning after neighbors reported of gunfire.

Sgt. Tim Murakami tells the San Gabriel Valley Tribune that deputies forced their way inside and discovered two women dead from gunshot wounds. One woman appeared to be in her 70s and the other appeared to be in her 90s.

Murakami says a wounded man apparently in his 70s was discovered in the backyard. The man died on the way to a hospital.

All of the deceased are believed to be family members, but their relationships are unclear.

Two guns were recovered.
