A 20-year veteran of the Los Angeles Fire Department, Tony Carlon, 44, was fatally shot multiple times by an off-duty firefighter at Los Angeles County Fire Station 81 in Agua Dulce on June 1, 2021.
Carlon was working alongside a fire captain when the suspect arrived at the station and opened fire. Carlon and the fire captain — who is recovering from critical injuries — were rushed to a nearby hospital, but Carlon was deceased on arrival.
After the shooting, the suspect returned to his home, barricaded himself inside and then set fire to the home. He was later found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. No motive has yet been determined.
Carlon was a husband and father of three young daughters who was described by many as loyal, brave and committed. To donate to the Carlon family, please visit gofundme.com/f/the-carlon-family.
