Tragic news has just emerged from LA in regards to Eagles co-founder, Randy Meisner.

The wife of Randy has been fatally shot from an accidental discharge of a rifle at the couple’s home in Los Angeles, police have confirmed.

Lana Meisner, 63, died less than two hours after officers were called to the couple’s home in North Hollywood over a domestic violence incident on Sunday evening.

Meisner had been moving a rifle in a closet when something in the weapon’s case shifted and hit the trigger, causing it to go off, the statement said.


The statement said investigators from the police and coroner’s office determined that the death was accidental and that Randy Meisner was “cooperative throughout the investigation.”

TMZ also reported Meisner told police his wife was waving a BB gun and “acting erratically.”
