Tragic Accidental Discharge of Firearm Results in Death of Mrs. Lana Meisner

North Hollywood: Mrs. Lana Meisner, wife of famed Eagles member Randy Meisner, was tragically shot when she moved a firearm that accidentally discharged.

On Sunday, March 6, 2016, around 5:30 p.m., North Hollywood patrol officers responded to a radio call of a woman asking for police assistance for a possibly intoxicated male suspect in the 3700 block of Eureka Drive. The officers took a domestic violence incident report and left the location.

On Sunday, March 6, 2016 around 7:00 p.m., North Hollywood patrol officers responded to a radio call of a shooting, in the 3700 block of Eureka Drive in the North Hollywood area. When officers arrived they found Mrs. Meisner suffering from a single gunshot wound.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded and pronounced Mrs. Meisner dead at the scene.

After a thorough investigation by Valley Bureau detective personnel and the Los Angeles Coroner's Office, it was determined that Mrs. Meisner's death was accidental. Mrs. Meisner was moving a rifle that was stored inside a case in a closet. As she lifted the rifle in the case, another item within the case shifted and hit the trigger of the rifle causing it to fire and fatally injure Mrs. Meisner.

Mr. Meisner was cooperative throughout the investigation.

It certainly would be nice if the LAPD notified next of kin before media releases are made. I am Lana Meisner's Brother and had to find this out through TMZ. It seems the media has more rights to information than I do. My Brother, Steve Beucler called the Hollywood Division over 6 hours ago and had to leave a message...no one has responded.

This is one of many far out reports in which I have been able to read.

The Los Angeles Police Department once more keeps an opened door for a duel in that report in a simple case of: who is more endured?
