The coroner Friday released the name of a man who killed himself after shooting and wounding a woman in unincorporated Willowbrook.

Manuel Penate, 46, was a Los Angeles resident, coroner’s Lt. Nani Cholakians said. His death was confirmed to have been the result of suicide.

The shooting was about 6:30 a.m. Monday in the 13000 Block of Carlton Avenue near homes and a community children’s center, sheriff’s Lieutenant Brian Allen said.

The victim was wounded in the shooting and Allen said it appeared Penate killed himself near the scene.

The victim was taken to the hospital and the severity of her wounds has not been reported, he said.
