INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - Police say a man found dead at the property where five members of a Southern California family were shot, two fatally, was wearing body armor, clutching a handgun and had a bullet hole in his head.
Inglewood Police Lt. James Madia said Sunday that the loaded handgun was a .38 caliber revolver registered to 55-year-old Desmond John Moses, who lived in a bungalow set ablaze before the deadly shooting spree.
The charred body was found inside the bungalow late Saturday and an autopsy will determine whether it is Moses.
The shooting rampage killed 33-year-old Filimon Lamas and his 4-year-old son. Lamas' 28-year-old wife, Gloria Jiminez, and two other young children were also shot.
Madia said Moses lived in the bungalow for 17 years, while the family lived in the front house for 8 years.
