The murder-suicide occurred in the 7100 block of Farralone Avenue.
Authorities said both victims had gunshot wounds.
They were later identified as 29-year-old Bahram Varahram, of Canoga Park, and 25-year-old Asleh Meradi Kashkouli, of Albuquerque, N.M., according to Lt. Fred Corral of the L.A. County Coroner’s Office.
