The wife of a former member of the popular rock band the Eagles was shot dead in the couple’s home. Billboard reports that Lana Rae Meisner, the wife of bass player and Eagles co-founder Randy Meisner, was killed Sunday at the home in Studio City, in Los Angeles.

CBS Los Angeles reported today that authorities were investigating the deadly shooting. “A preliminary investigation revealed the incident was not a homicide and the shooting appears to be accidental,” the story reports. “At this time, no one has been detained or arrested.”

The report says LAPD officers were sent to the home at about 7 p.m. Sunday and found a victim suffering from what appeared to be gunshot wounds. They pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

Billboard notes that Randy Meisner, who left the Eagles in 1977, has apparently been involved in unusual incidents in the past. Meisner “allegedly threatened murder-suicide with an AK-47 and pills in January 2015, according to the New York Daily News,” the article reports. “He was consequently put on mandated court supervision. He and Lana Rae married in November 1996.”
