After the shooting, Tatone drove to his home in Acton about 10 miles from the station and appeared to set fire to the structure. He was later found dead in the home’s backyard of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The Los Angeles Times, citing two sources with knowledge of the situation, reported that there was an ongoing dispute between Carlon and Tatone.

The sources told The Times the dispute was apparently over the way the station was run and maintained, and the pair had argued in the past about various issues.

Carlon is survived by his wife Heidi and their three daughters.
