Autopsy pending on body at Calif shooting scene


INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - An autopsy is pending on a charred body found in the Southern California bungalow belonging to a gunman accused of breaking into a neighbor's home and shooting five family members, killing two of them.

Lt. Cheryl MacWillie with the Los Angeles County coroner's office said Sunday that investigators are still gathering information and the autopsy has not yet been scheduled.

The shooting rampage Saturday killed 33-year-old Filimon Lamas and his 4-year-old son. His 28-year-old wife, Gloria Jiminez, was shot in both legs but managed to carry the wounded 4-year-old out of the house.

Investigators believed 55-year-old Desmond John Moses set his own home ablaze before entering the family's home and opening fire.

Authorities said the body was found during a search of the badly burned bungalow. They will try to determine if the body is that of Moses.
