Los Angeles County coroner’s officials on Monday identified a man and woman who died in an apparent murder-suicide outside a fast-food restaurant in Downey.

The woman was identified as Blanca Celina Gonzalez Ceja, 35, and the man as Daniel Dubon, 38, both of Lynwood.

Downey police responded to a report of someone possibly drunk or injured in the parking lot behind El Pollo Loco in the 14300 block of Lakewood Boulevard about 11:45 p.m. Sunday, a department spokesman said.

Officers found the woman dead inside a red pickup and the man dead outside the truck. Both had gunshot wounds and there was a handgun on the ground next to the man.

There were no witnesses to the shooting, police said.
