CHATSWORTH, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Police are investigating a possible murder-suicide after a father and his 10-year-old son were found dead next to a car in Chatsworth.

The bodies were found around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 21000 block of Plummer Street near William Tell Aggeler High School, an alternative learning campus that is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District.

The bodies were next to the car when LAPD arrived at the scene. Investigators say they were originally discovered by witnesses inside the vehicle but were removed from the interior by the time first responders arrived.

The coroner's office has identified them as Jose Romo Guerra, 35, and Michael Romo Sandoval, 10, both listed as Canoga Park residents.

It's not clear how they died, but they were both pronounced dead at the scene.
