4 Shot Dead In LA In Laundry Dispute
A deranged dad went on a New Year’s Eve shooting rampage sparked by a beef over a washing machine, killing his wife and two others in his Los Angeles County home before his own son wrestled the gun away and killed him, authorities said Friday.
The 54-year-old father used a semiautomatic pistol in the bloodbath in Rowland Heights about half an hour east of Los Angeles, killing his 54-year-old wife, his son’s 48-year-old girlfriend and a 27-year-old man who was visiting, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department said.
“It looks like it was a dispute between the dad and the son’s girlfriend, probably over using the washing machine,” Sheriff’s Lt. John Corina told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. “For some reason, this set the dad off.”
