SAN GABRIEL (CNS) – The coroner’s office today released the name of a woman shot to death in an unincorporated area of the San Gabriel Valley in what sheriff’s homicide detectives said may have been intended as a murder-suicide.
She was Malisa Muruato, 22, of Alhambra, said coroner’s Lt. Joe Bale.
The shooting was reported Sunday at 9 a.m. in the 8100 block of Cielito Drive, south of San Gabriel, said Deputy Guillermina Saldana of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau. Deputies from the sheriff’s Temple station went to the location in response to a report of a “gunshot victim” and found a couple suffering from gunshot wounds, Saldana said.
The woman died at the scene. Paramedics rushed the man to a hospital, and his condition was not immediately determined.
“Homicide detectives have learned that both victims were involved in a relationship and had a child together,” Saldana said.
Sheriff’s homicide detectives asked anyone with any information regarding the shooting attack to call them at (323) 890-5500.
