Homicide_map Three people, including a six-month-old baby, were discovered dead of gunshot wounds inside an Alhambra home Thursday morning in what investigators suspect is a murder-suicide.

Alhambra Police Lt. Edith Lopez said officers received a call about 4:30 a.m. of a possible suicide at a house in the 800 block of South Sierra Vista Avenue.

Inside the home, officers found the bodies of a man, a woman and the baby. All three had been shot, she said.

Lopez said evidence led investigators to believe it was a “murder-suicide.” Detectives were not yet saying which adult might have done the shootings.

Coroner’s officials will determine the cause of the deaths. Authorities were withholding the victims' names until their relatives could be notified.
