The family of a California firefighter who was fatally shot by another firefighter who later took his own life has been identified.
KTLA and the Los Angeles Times report that multiple sources said 44-year-old Tory Carlon was killed Tuesday morning after a yet-unidentified colleague who was not on duty at the time stormed into the Agua Dulce fire station and began shooting. He also shot a 54-year-old captain, who remains hospitalized.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, the suspect is believed to have driven to his home in Acton where he was found dead in a pool with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. When officers arrived, the home was in flames and required helicopters to extinguish.
