Officers responded to a 911 call regarding a disturbance with a weapon at the above address and had to force entry into the house.  When they entered they found the bodies of both women and a gun nearby.  Family members stated Espinoza had called them shortly before the incident and threatened suicide.  It is believed Ms. Flores placed the call to 911.  Flores and Espinoza had a romantic relationship and it appears the incident originated from a domestic dispute.
