Frank Joseph McKane, 59

Frank McKane, a 59-year-old white man, was shot and killed Monday, July 23, in the 2100 block of Sea Ridge Drive in Signal Hill, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Signal Hill police arrived at a residence after receiving a call about 8:30 p.m. Officers found McKane’s body at his home, where his 38-year-old girlfriend, the alleged shooter, attempted suicide.

The woman was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

McKane’s preliminary coroner report shows he sustained two gunshot wounds to his back, right forearm, and mouth, as well as slice wounds to his left hand.

It’s unclear if the woman was later arrested in connection with McKane’s death.

Anyone with additional details about the shooting is asked to contact the sheriff's homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500. Tipsters wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
