Randy Meisner, 69, told police that his wife was shot by accident as she searched for something in the closet. The wife of Eagles cofounder Randy Meisner was shot and killed last night in Los Angeles, according to police. It's unclear how Lana Rae Meisner was killed on Sunday (March 6) in Studio City, Calif. An investigation is on-going.
Police did confirm to the New York Post's Page Six that police were called to the Meisners' home and that a suspect was arrested. Randy (who left the group in 1977) allegedly threatened murder-suicide with an AK-47 and pills in January 2015.
Law enforcement sources told the gossip site that Lana reported Randy for waving a BB gun around and "acting erratically" at approximately 5.30pm on Sunday.
Law enforcement had been to the Meisner residence earlier in the evening, several news outlets report. But just an hour later, Randy called the police and told them that Lana had been shot in the head. According to that source, Meisner told the police that his wife "was stumbling around, looking for something in a closet where there were two guns".
Meisner was not invited to perform alongside The Eagles at this year's Grammy Awards where they played a tribute to recently deceased member Glenn Frey.
Making the case for Newton to be granted conservatorship, Martin said that Lana was in denial about the singer's various conditions and had done little to help him battle them.
The founding Eagles member left the band in 1977.
Randy and Lana were married in 1996 after being together for twelve years.
