Investigation continues in twins’ shooting deaths in Pomona

POMONA — Authorities continued their investigation Thursday into the deaths of twin brothers found shot to death in a Pomona parking lot.
Ricardo Delgado Aguilar and Roger Aguilar, both 28, were both found shot to death about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday behind a business at 3201 W. Temple Ave., Pomona police Sgt. Jaime Gutierrez said in a written statement. Both were listed with coroner’s officials as being transients.
Both initially appeared to have suffered gunshot wounds to the head, though coroner’s investigators were yet to determined whether each man’s death was the result of homicide or suicide, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner’s Chief of Operations Craig Harvey said.
The investigation is ongoing, however Gutierrez said police do not believe there is a suspect at large.
“We are comfortable in the belief that this was a murder-suicide or suicide-suicide,” the sergeant said.
“The twin brothers had a very close relationship and had recently made statements to family members which led them to believe they killed themselves,” he said. “Pending test results and autopsy, we are leaning toward this conclusion.”
The gun believed to have been used in the shooting was recovered at the scene, police and coroner’s officials said. Autopsies were expected to be carried out Friday.
Anyone with information is asked to call Pomona police detectives at 909-620-2095.
