2 men found shot to death at business complex in Pomona [Updated]

December 15, 2010 |  6:48 pm

Twin brothers were found shot to death Wednesday morning in the rear parking lot of a business complex in Pomona, authorities said.

Officers responding to a "man down" call about 8:30 a.m. at 3201 Temple Ave. found the two men with gunshot wounds to their upper torsos, according to Pomona police. They were pronounced dead at the scene by Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office identified the men Wednesday evening as Ricardo Aguilar and Roger Aguilar, both 28, of Pomona.

Police Lt. Chuck Becker said there were no leads and detectives were exploring all possibilities. He added that the shooting had nothing to do with the business where the bodies were found.

Anyone with information about the shooting should call Pomona police detectives at (909) 620-2095. Callers may remain anonymous.

[Updated, 8:20 p.m.: Investigators have ruled the deaths a murder-suicide or double suicide.

“The twin brothers had a very close relationship and had recently made statements to family members which led them to believe they killed themselves,” police said in a statement. “At this time we know how they got to the area and who they spoke to last. The weapon we believe used in the incident was recovered at the scene."]
