Toni Zazueta, a 29-year-old Latina, was shot and killed Saturday, Oct. 17, in the 11500 block of Tina Street in Norwalk, authorities said.
L.A. County Sheriff's deputies said they believed Zazueta -- whose body was found with the body of a man whose name was not immediately released -- was the victim of a murder-suicide. The man also had gunshot wounds.
Officers found the bodies after responding to a report of assault with a deadly weapon at 12:50 p.m., said Rick Pedroza, a deputy sheriff. A handgun was recovered at the scene.
