Wife of Ex-Eagles Member Killed in Accidental Shooting at Studio City Home

Studio City, Ca (3-7-16) Lana Meisner, the wife of former Eagles member Randy Meisner, died when a rifle she was moving accidentally discharged at her Studio City home, LAPD officials said on Monday.

Officers responded to the 3700 block of Eureka Drive on Sunday around 7 p.m. to a call of a shooting and found the victim suffering from a single gunshot wound, according to a Los Angeles Police Department news release.

Paramedics arrived at the scene but were unable to save Lana Meisner, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

She was apparently moving a rifle that was stored inside a case, when another item within the case shifted, hit the trigger and caused the firearm to discharge, according to the release.

Her death has been ruled accidental following a thorough investigation by LAPD Valley Bureau detectives and the Los Angeles coroner’s office.

Randy Meisner, 69, was cooperating with investigators, LAPD stated.

About 90 minutes before the fatal shooting, patrol officers had responded to the same block after a woman called police for assistance regarding a possibly intoxicated man, the release stated. They took a domestic violence incident report and left.


Wagner teacher accidentally shot in Avon home

WAGNER, SD (3-7-16) — An elementary teacher at Wagner Community School is expected to make a full recovery after accidentally shooting himself in his home, law enforcement said.

Travis Barthel, a third-grade teacher at Wagner Community School, took a bullet from an accidental discharge of a 9 mm pistol on Feb. 26 in his home on the outskirts of Avon, according to Bon Homme County Sheriff Lenny Gramkow. Barthel declined to comment on the matter Monday.

According to Gramkow, Barthel had the pistol in his coat pocket. At about 6:20 p.m., the coat fell to the floor after Barthel took it off, and the pistol fired one bullet upward into Barthel's stomach and through the back of his left shoulder.

"He's lucky it didn't hit any vital organs or anything," Gramkow said. Barthel will remain hospitalized for another week, authorities say. After a brief investigation, the shooting was deemed accidental, Gramkow said. "It was just a freak accident, basically," Gramkow said.

Barthel's wife, a certified nurse practitioner at Wagner Community Clinic Avera, was present at the time of the shooting, according to Gramkow. An Avon ambulance transported Barthel to St. Michael's Hospital in Tyndall, and he was eventually moved to a hospital in Yankton, where he continues his recovery.

A Bon Homme County deputy and a Tyndall police officer — who works part time for the sheriff's office — also responded.
