Two men in their thirties were found shot to death inside a vehicle on the side of the 405 Freeway just north of the Long Beach Boulevard on-ramp. The victims have been identified as Reginald Watson Sajonas, 37, of Anaheim, and Derek Alexander Pouono, 36, of Long Beach, according to the Press-Telegram.

The bodies were found inside a Honda Pilot bearing "several bullet marks" at around 9:30 Saturday. The California Highway Patrol handed over the investigation to the Long Beach Police Department, who are working to determine where the shooting actually took place, and why.
