A police news release says officers found 63-year-old Lana Rae Meisner dead on Sunday from a single gunshot wound at the couple's home in the San Fernando Valley.

Investigators say Lana Rae Meisner lifted the rifle from a storage case when another item inside shifted and hit the trigger, causing the gun to fire.

Police say Randy Meisner was co-operative throughout the investigation. Officials say police had responded to the home earlier Sunday and took a domestic violence incident report.

Randy Meisner co-founded the Eagles and co-wrote and sang the hit "Take It To the Limit." He played bass and guitar and left the band in 1977.
