Landlord-tenant dispute may have sparked deadly shooting
MILL VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a tenant-landlord dispute may have sparked a Northern California shooting that left a woman and the gunman dead and the landlord seriously wounded.
Authorities say 71-year-old Victor Lugo, who was facing eviction, argued with his landlord at the Mill Valley apartment complex Thursday afternoon and shot the man and his daughter.
Thirty-year-old Sabrina Lew died at a hospital and 84-year-old Leonard Lew remains hospitalized Friday. He is expected to survive.
The Marin County Sheriff’s Office says after the shooting, Lugo went into an apartment, prompting authorities to evacuate neighbors and lock down the complex.
Lugo was found dead about two hours later of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. A revolver was found nearby.
Authorities say eviction proceedings had been started against Lugo in March.
