DOWNEY, Calif. -- Two people were killed when a shooting broke out at a local business in Downey as well as a home nearby on Wednesday.
Downey police say the deceased victims are supervisors at the business, believed to be United States Fire Protection on the 8700 block of Cleta Street.
Lt. Dean Milligan with Downey police said the initial call about the business shooting came in at about 11:12 a.m. About five minutes later, police received another call about a second shooting at a home about a block and a half west of the business. Milligan said the two locations are directly related, but he did not say exactly how they were linked.
Milligan said a male victim was found dead at the business location, and a female victim was found dead at the residence. Their relationship and identities were not released.
