Police Friday investigated an apparent murder-suicide at a residence near the Filipinotown area of Los Angeles.

The shootings occurred about 10 p.m. Thursday in the 100 block of South Hoover Street, said Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department‘s Media Relations office.

Ana Moran, 45, of Los Angeles, died at the scene, said L.A. Coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter. She had been shot, apparently by a man, in his 50s who apparently then shot himself, Winter said. The man, whose name was withheld pending notification of his relatives, also died at the scene, Winter said.

The man apparently was the victim’s former boyfriend, he said.
