60 year old deputy city attorney kills self, wife and 19 year old son today.

A 60-year-old deputy city attorney and his wife and adult son were killed Wednesday in what authorities are describing as a probable murder-suicide.



About 9:15 a.m., the Los Angeles Police Department received a call about a “family disturbance” in suburban Northridge in the 9600 block of Vanalden Avenue and found three people had been shot and killed, said LAPD Officer Christopher No.

Detectives have recovered two guns at the scene.

On Wednesday afternoon, Los Angeles City Atty. Mike Feuer’s office released a statement confirming that Deputy City Atty. Eric Lertzman, who joined the office in 2005, was involved in the incident.


“This is a horrible tragedy,” Feuer said in the statement. “As we search for answers to how this could happen, we mourn the victims and envelop those left behind with our love during this time of unbearable loss. Of course we will provide members of our city attorney family with needed counseling and support.”

The deceased included Lertzman’s wife Sandra, 60, and his son Michael, 19, whose deaths authorities reported as homicides, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. Police reported Eric Lertzman’s death as a suicide.

Neighbors told KABC-TV Channel 7 that a father shot his wife and son, but that his daughter managed to escape through a bathroom window and call police.

Neighbor Greg Demos told KTLA-TV Channel 5 that the woman ran to his home in her pajamas and said that her father had tried to shoot her.

13. Health problems, pain, and medication?

It seems like the explanation was in the last couple of sentences. I read the five headers as I scrolled down. Too much to sift through with ads, etc.

9. I can never understand why anyone would kill their family

I get suicides, but why would anyone take out their family if they are depressed? If you have to kill someone, just shoot yourself.

11. The surviving daughter will have to carry this horrible weight for her entire life.

And all the dark thoughts that will inevitably come unbidden to her each day. And all of those demons will bear the NRA mark.

I wish her strength to abide this horror, and all peace in time.
