    INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — A father and his 4-year-old son were killed and a woman and two other young children were wounded by a gunman wearing a painter's mask who set fire to their home near Los Angeles early Saturday, authorities said.

    Inglewood Police Chief Mark Fronterotta told KABC-TV that a SWAT team set up a perimeter and was using dogs to search for the attacker, who may have lived in a rear house on the property. Investigators were trying to determine whether the suspect fled or remained in the house as it burned.......

    Detectives determined the suspect set the house ablaze before opening fire with a weapon, .................

    The 28-year-old woman, said to be the children's mother, was being treated for gunshot wounds. She was in critical condition, as was a 6-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to the pelvis and a 7-year-old girl with a gunshot wound to the chest, according to a department statement.

    After being shot, the mother carried the wounded 4-year-old to a neighbor's yard.

    "This extraordinary rescue attempt by the mother occurred in spite of the fact that she had gunshot wounds to both legs," the statement said.

    The 30-year-old father was shielding two of his children when he was shot, the chief said. He died in surgery, as did the 4-year-old boy.

    Soooo Sad. The neighbors said this guy was weird and had not paid his rent in a year. How can anyone shoot a 4 yr old child?

    This is the latest new I could find.

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lan...d-family-was-recently-evicted-woman-says.html

    Fronterotta described the suspect as a 55-year-old black male, 5 feet 6, 160 pounds, wearing a black cap or beanie with a white painter&#8217;s hat over it. The gunman had known the family for at least eight years, according to Capt. Tom Richards of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

    As dark smoke rose from the smoldering home in the quiet neighborhood, an Inglewood police SWAT team cleared the surrounding structures and searched for the suspect. Police warned residents to stay inside their homes as they combed the area north of Century Boulevard about a mile west of the Hollywood Park racetrack.

    So it seems they were all renters from the new owner....I agree, why blame this family and take his rage out on them?

    All I have to say is 'why, why, why'! This poor family, to suffer from such violence. :(

    May this end as peacefully as possible.

    As far as ending peacefully, there is a part of me that thinks it might be better if an "officer-involved shooting" occurs. With no harm to the officers, of course.

    I checked out the 'parking lot' for scanner chatter, but couldn't find anything on this case. Is anyone here familiar with the Inglewood area? What would be the best scanner to listen to?

    Newest article- New Property owner said the shooter lost his case for eviction in court Tues. That he had not paid rent in years.

    Why Why attack this family who lived in the house in front of him who had known him for 8 years??? I don't understand.

    Police end evacuation of Inglewood area where family was shotInglewood

    Police Chief Mark Fronterotta described the suspect as a 55-year-old black man, 5 feet 6, 160 pounds, wearing a black baseball cap with possibly a white painter&#8217;s mask over his face. He had known the family at least eight years, according to Richards.



    &#8220;The father was found draped over two of the children, shielding them,&#8221; Fronterotta said. The father, 30, was shot multiple times while protecting his children, police said. He and his 4-year-old son died at a hospital after surgery.

    The children's mother, 28, was shot in both legs but managed to jump over the property&#8217;s back fence with her 4-year-old son, Fronterotta said. Paramedics found her collapsed on the street.

    Her 7-year-old daughter was shot in the chest. Both mother and daughter were in critical condition at a local hospital. A 6-year-old boy, who suffered a gunshot wound to the pelvis, was in stable condition. An 8-year-old boy escaped injury, Richards said.

    INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Police were nearly certain Sunday that a man found dead at the property where five members of a Southern California family were shot — two fatally — was the killer because he was wearing body armor, clutching a handgun and had a bullet hole in his head..............

    While police couldn't conclude that the body is that of Moses until the autopsy is concluded, "the evidence suggests this is the case," the statement added..........more at link.....

    I saw a picture in the LA Times of this beautiful family. HEARTBREAKING. They looked so happy and healthy and a wonderful example of family values. This is so tragically senseless. :furious:
