Lana Ray Meisner, the wife of Eagles co-founder Randy Meisner, died Sunday when a rifle accidentally discharged while being moved, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
North Hollywood officers responded to a call of a shooting at 7 p.m., the department said in a statement. They found Lana Meisner with a single gunshot wound.
She was pronounced dead at the scene by L.A. Fire Department personnel.
Lana Meisner was killed when she moved a rifle stored in a case in a closet, the statement said.
"As she lifted the rifle in the case, another item within the case shifted and hit the trigger of the rifle causing it to fire and fatally injure Mrs. Meisner," the statement said.
Police said they had been at the home earlier on Sunday and taken a domestic violence incident report. Meisner had called 911 an hour and a half before she was shot to report domestic violence at the house. She claimed her husband was waiving a BB gun and "acting erratically." .....
The musician, who founded the Eagles, was taken to hospital in the early hours of Monday morning, after "acting in an altered state", according to TMZ. ....
Meisner was placed under court-ordered 24-hour supervision in January 2015, when he allegedly threatened murder-suicide with an AK-47 and pills, according to a New York Daily News report.

A neighbor heard Randy yell “one of these nights!” and knew there was going to be another heartache tonight. Randy complained that his wife--the one he met standing on a corner in Winslow Arizona--was a witchy woman with lyin' eyes. He mocked her as a bubble-headed bleached blonde, obviously she did not get the best of his love. The paramedics tried to revive her but she was already gone; their love couldn’t keep her alive. Meisner was a certain kind of fool to be guilty of the crime, in the long run she was probably just a victim of love. Lana thought she could check out any time she liked, but didn't know that she couldn’t leave.
When Meissner was questioned by the police, all he said is “I can’t tell you why.” Randy's alibi was that he was driving down the road at the time, trying to loosen his load, a world of trouble on his mind. So now he's a desperado. He should have taken it easy, and tried to achieve that peaceful easy feeling. Instead he took it to the limit. But that's life in the fast lane. It's what happens when you let the sound of your own wheels make you crazy.
But I didn't kick Meissner when he was up, and I'm not going to kick him when he's down. I'm not going to give you any dirty laundry.
