Wife Of Eagles Star Accidentally Shoots Herself

The wife of former Eagles member Randy Meisner has died after accidentally shooting herself in the head, police have confirmed.

Officers found Lana Rae Meisner dead from a single gunshot wound on Sunday at the couple's home in the San Fernando Valley.

Investigators have now revealed the 63-year-old was lifting a rifle from its case when another item inside shifted and hit the trigger.

Police had visited the home earlier on Sunday and took a domestic violence incident report.

Mr Meisner, 69, has been cooperative throughout the investigation, police said.

"Based on the evidence at the scene, it appears to be a complete accident," a police source told the Daily News.

"No foul play whatsoever. There is nothing indicative that it was a murder at all."

The source said Mr Meisner was in a different part of the house when the gun went off.

Mr Meisner was taken to hospital in the early hours of Monday morning, according to TMZ.

The musician co-founded the Eagles, playing bass and guitar before leaving in 1977.
