Two men and one woman were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide this morning in La Puente.

Sheriff's deputies responded to calls that shots were fired in the 700 block of Sierra Vista Court just before 10:30am this morning. By the time they got there, they found the bodies of three middle-aged adults who had been shot to death. There were no children at the scene, deputies said.

Investigators said that they suspect that one of the men killed his ex-girlfriend, her new boyfriend and then shot himself, according to ABC 7. One of the victims was lying in the door of the house. Deputies blocked off the area nearby while they investigated.
