The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is investigating the discovery of a man found shot and dead in a taxi cab parked outside of a burning home early Monday.

Firefighters arrived at a San Dimas home about 5 a.m. and battled the fire for half an hour. Rescue workers also found the body of the man, who remains unidentified, in the taxi, said Sheriff's Sgt. Pauline Panis.

The Sheriff's Department is currently investigating the death as a potential suicide, Panis said.

"The investigation is ongoing," she said. "We've yet to fully investigate the house to see if there are other victims or signs of foul play."
