INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - Police say a masked gunman who set fire to his home before shooting five members of a Southern California family was in a dispute with the victims.
Inglewood Police Chief Mark Fronterotta said a manhunt continues for 55-year-old Desmond John Moses after early Saturday's shooting rampage, which left a father and his 4-year-old son dead and three others wounded.
The father was shielding two of his children when he was shot. The mother and the couple's 6-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter remain hospitalized.
Police say Moses lived in a bungalow behind a house where the victims lived, and had known them for years.
The property owner told the Los Angeles Times that Moses recently fought an eviction notice in court and lost his case.
