I.E. brothers' deaths shrouded in mystery

The deaths of two young brothers in Chino Hills are still shrouded in mystery. Autopsies on the bodies are planned for later Wednesday afternoon.While police have not said whether the deaths of Bryan Gonzalez, 12, and Christian Gonzalez, 10, were believed to be an accident or a murder-suicide, they did say they were not looking for any suspects.

"We're just in shock. Our community is in shock. I can't believe that this happened," said Krissy Rogers of Chino Hills.

A family member called 911 from a mobile home at 6281 Mystic Canyon Dr. on Tuesday just before noon. When authorities arrived, they found the two boys at the bottom of a ravine. Both boys had died from gunshots.

A gun was located nearby, but investigators say that the gun belonged to the boys' father. Authorities said the parents are being extremely cooperative with the investigation.

A memorial for Bryan and Christian now sits along the driveway to the boys' home. All morning long, friends stopped by to pay their respects. For many, it's still too difficult to talk about.

"She told me that my friend died," said 11-year-old Cameron Rogers while choking back tears. Rogers said he met Bryan at school. They were both supposed to start junior high next month.

Both of the victims were students at Butterfield Ranch Elementary.

Anyone with information related to the case is asked to call sheriff's homicide investigators at (909) 387-3589.
