Brandon Wesley Deuitt, a 25-year-old white man, was shot and killed Wednesday, May 14, in the 37000 block of 29th Street East in Palmdale, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
Deputies responded about 2:49 p.m. to a call of a shooting at a home, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Investigators said that two men – Deuitt and his grandfather, 74-year-old Crawford Eugene Deuitt – were arguing at the home. The fight escalated to a shoving match after the elder Deuitt’s wife intervened.
Crawford Deuitt then walked into another area of the home, got a handgun, came back, shot his grandson and then turned the gun on himself.
Brandon Deuitt was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:08 p.m., said Ed Winter, a coroner’s spokesman. Crawford Deuitt also died.
