FAIRFIELD, Calif. (CBS13) — A contentious domestic living situation may have triggered a multiple murder-suicide in Fairfield that left four people shot, three fatally.
The Fairfield Police Department said a man inside the home on the 5200 block of Venus Drive called 911 just after noon and told dispatchers he and the other occupants in the home had been shot.
Neighbors said tensions in the home had been running high after the owner’s ex-wife moved back in with a male friend, and police said they have responded to the home multiple times for various disturbances.
The situation may have begun spiraling out of control yesterday when legal papers were served and demands made about leaving the home, neighbors said.
The woman’s ex-husband, identified by neighbors as 37-year-old Jason Eisenberg, shot and killed her and her friend while wounding another man inside the home before turning the gun on himself.
Eisenberg was evacuated by helicopter to a hospital, where he later died.
Eisenberg’s father said he was downstairs and fled when the gunfire started, and managed to escape even though the shooter briefly followed him.
Investigators have not confirmed the identities of the victims or their relationships to one another.
