Woman wounded by Pacific Palisades man was caregiver, neighbors say

July 31, 2013

A Pacific Palisades man shot and wounded his caretaker before fatally turning the gun on himself early Tuesday, neighbors told a local television station. Police confirmed that the man had shot the woman, then himself.

Residents near the 1400 block of Paseo de Oro, where the shooting occurred, told NBC 4 the man had suffered a stroke in recent months and the victim was his caregiver.

The Los Angeles Police Department has not confirmed the relationship between the woman and the dead man.

Officer Wendy Reyes said there was no search for a suspect because the shooting was considered “an isolated incident.”

Police found the two after responding to a report of shots fired shortly before 8:30 a.m., LAPD Sgt. Albert Gonzalez said.

The man, shot once, was pronounced dead at the scene, Reyes said. The woman, shot multiple times, was taken to a hospital. Her condition was not known.

LAPD Officer Bruce Borihanh confirmed that the man shot the woman, then himself.
