A Los Angeles area man faces four murder charges resulting from a shooting last week. The man allegedly killed his father, brother, a former girlfriend and a man with no known connections to the shooter. He also shot and wounded his mother and another man and tried to rob another man in Canoga Park.
The District Attorney’s Office charged the man with four counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of attempted robbery. In addition, the man faces a special allegation of multiple murders, which makes him eligible for the death penalty. The District Attorney’s Office has not yet said whether it will seek execution.
Police have not given a motive for the shootings, but said the man has a history of violence and drug use.
