A story for every victim

Lynda Doi Fick, 68

Lynda Doi Fick, a 68-year-old Asian woman, was found dead Sunday, Feb. 19, in the 700 block of South Rancho Sinaloa Drive in Covina, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

About 6:15 p.m. Feb. 18, Covina police were called to the home of Lynda Fick and Lucas Doi Fick, a 36-year-old parolee, said Sgt. Antonia Zavala of the Covina Police Department. 

Shortly before midnight, officers knocked on the door to the Covina home. No one answered, but police saw lights go off inside the house and believed someone was inside, Zavala said. 

Officers surrounded the house and ordered Lucas Fick to come out. When he did not comply, officers got a warrant, and a SWAT team entered.

Inside, police found the bodies of Lynda Fick, Lucas Fick's mother, and Nicole Biewener, 23, who had recently begun dating the man. Both were pronounced dead at 12:36 a.m, according to coroner’s records.

A 2-year-old boy who had been shot in the back was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover, Zavala said.

Lucas Fick, wearing an ankle monitor, was in the house as well and had two guns, police said. He was arrested on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm and is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.  

Investigators consider Fick a suspect in the deaths of Lynda Fick and Biewener, but they haven't yet presented a case to the district attorney's office. Detectives are trying to determine whether the guns found at the home match the ones used to shoot the two women and the boy. 

Fick is affiliated with a gang, Zavala said. Court records show Fick has a lengthy criminal record that includes multiple convictions for drug possession, robbery and unlawful possession of weapons and ammunition. He was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in 2004.
