A grandfather and grandson died in an apparent murder-suicide in Palmdale,
Deputies responded about 2:49 p.m. Wednesday to a call of a shooting at a home in the 37800 block of 29th Street East, according to a Sheriff's Department statement.
The officers found the two men inside, each with a single gunshot wound, the statement said. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators said the two men -- a grandfather and grandson -- had been arguing when it escalated into a shoving match and ultimately ended when the grandfather retrieved a handgun and shot his grandson.
The grandfather then turned the gun on himself, authorities said.
The names and ages of the men were not immediately available.
