Calif assemblyman's father killed in LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say the father of California Assemblyman Mike Gatto has been fatally shot in his Los Angeles home.

Lt. Richard Parks says 78-year-old Joseph Gatto was found late Wednesday at his home in Silver Lake. Police say a family member arrived at the home shortly after 8 p.m. and found Gatto shot at least one time.

Police say the home had been ransacked. No arrests have been made.

Mike Gatto, D-Los Angeles, was elected to represent California's 43rd District in a special election three years ago. Email messages for the assemblyman's spokesmen were not immediately returned Thursday.
