Officials ID One of Two Men Killed in Apparent Murder-Suicide in Commerce


Authorities Tuesday identified one of two men who died in a shooting at a Commerce business in what the sheriff's department said was an apparent murder-suicide.

The men died at the scene of the shooting, which occurred just before 11:45 a.m. Monday in the 2700 block of Supply Avenue, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

One of the men was identified by the Los Angeles County coroner's office as Ronald Lee, 51, of Pasadena. Authorities withheld the name of the other man, who was in his 50s, pending notification of his relatives.

Law enforcement authorities have listed Lee as "the reported homicide" and the other man as "the reported suicide," according to the coroner's office.

"The incident appeared to be a murder-suicide where an employee shot and killed another employee and then shot and killed himself," LASD Deputy Lizette Falcon said.

Anyone with information on the shooting was asked to contact the LASD Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Anonymous tips can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or submitted at lacrimestoppers.org.
