A 38-year-old man who allegedly fatally shot two women in Chula Vista and called police to report the killing was found dead in Norwalk Friday morning, authorities said.
Around 3 a.m., a man who identified himself as David Bell called 911 and told dispatchers that he had shot and killed his girlfriend and her aunt in the 2700 block of Apricot Court, according to Chula Vista Police Department Lt. Eric Thunberg.
Officers responded to the townhouse and found the bodies of both women, each with apparent gunshot wounds, in separate bedrooms, Thunberg said.
The victims were identified as 39-year-old Aura Mancilla and her aunt, 58-year-old Patricia Garcia. Bell was living at the location with his girlfriend, as was Garcia while she worked on a retirement home in Mexico, according to the lieutenant.
Around 8:45 a.m., deputies with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department located a vehicle matching the description of Bell's, a white Mazda with Oklahoma license plates, in the 12000 block of Imperial Highway.
Investigators found a man dead in the vehicle, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to sheriff's Sgt. Eric Arias.
Before the body was discovered, Chula Vista police were apparently tracking the suspect and told authorities that he may have been in the Norwalk area.
Officials have not formally identified the man, but they believe he is the suspect in the double homicide.
Police are still investigating a motive in the shooting.
