Neighbor Greg Demos tells KTLA 5 that a woman in her 20s came banging on his door Wednesday morning.

”Add she said, ‘my dad took a shot at me and my mom and my brother are still inside.”

He says a detective later told him the details. Apparently, the woman’s father, Deputy City Attorney Eric Lertzman, tried to shoot her but missed as she escaped through a window. The neighbor says the woman heard her father shoot her mother and brother. They are both dead. In a statement, City Attorney Mike Feuer called the triple murder-suicide a “horrible tragedy”.
