UPDATE: According to CBS Los Angeles, a preliminary police investigation indicates that the fatal shooting on the 3700 block of Eureka Avenue in Studio City was not intentional but rather accidental. 

Original Post: Lana Rae Meisner, the wife of former Eagles co-founder and bassist Randy Meisner, was shot dead in the couple's Los Angeles home, a public information officer confirms to Billboard.  

The LAPD received a call at 5:30 pm PST on Sunday (March 6). An officer was not immediately able to confirm if it was Randy or Lana Rae who had made the first call.

The ex-Eagles member has witnessed dramatic episodes in the past. Randy (who left the group in 1977) allegedly threatened murder-suicide with an AK-47 and pills in January 2015, according to the New York Daily News. He was consequently put on mandated court supervision. He and Lana Rae married in November 1996. 

The LAPD adds that no arrests were made and a press release will be issued later this afternoon.

Billboard has reached out to an Eagles' rep for comment.
