LAPD investigators believe that the shooting that took place Monday afternoon inside an East Hollywood T-Shirt store was a murder-suicide. Officers who arrived to the scene at the Sunset T-Shirts Warehouse at 5401 West Sunset Blvd. [map] found the bodies of 40-year-old Chul Pak of Los Angeles and 50-year-old Marc Bayar of Valley Village. Detectives surmise that Pak first shot Bayar, then turned the gun on himself, using the gun registered to him that was found at the scene. Although they are not searching for anymore suspects, the LAPD are continuing their investigation of the crime.
