Granada Hills Murder-Suicide Leaves Four Dead

A murder-suicide event in Granada Hills, Los Angeles, resulted in four fatalities on Saturday. The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) responded to a shooting report on Lerdo Avenue shortly before 7 p.m.

On arrival, the officers found four individuals at the scene who were later pronounced dead. After an investigation, LAPD determined the incident as a murder-suicide.

The police officers at the scene received no answer upon knocking at the door. Forced entry led them to a survivor who directed them to three victims. The deceased, who sustained gunshot wounds, included a man and a woman in their late 40s and an approximately 80-year-old woman.

In a different part of the house, officers discovered a man in his late 80s dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The man is believed to have shot the others, according to LAPD reports.

LAPD Capt. Kelly Muniz, during a recent press briefing, confirmed the presence of a witness who fortunately was unharmed. The witness was able to barricade themselves, call the police, and survive the encounter.

As of now, the LAPD has not released the victims’ names or a possible motive behind the incident.
