A married couple from Garden Grove who investigators suspect died in a murder-suicide were identified Monday by Orange County coroner's officials.

Thanh Vuong, 51, and Yvone Tran, 39, were found with gunshot wounds Thursday in their home in the 1500 block of Sail Avenue. Paramedics pronounced them dead at the scene.

Police went to the house after receiving a 911 hang-up call from the home at 4:16 a.m. A male relative called the Garden Grove Police Department shortly after and said a family member may have shot his wife and then himself.

Family members later told investigators the couple were having marital problems and were considering a divorce.

They had two children -- a 4-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl. It was unclear whether the children were in the house at the time of the shooting or at a relative's.
