Tory Carlon

Firefighter Specialist

On Tuesday, June 1, 2021, Firefighter Specialist Tory Carlon was shot and killed and a captain was injured at the Agua Dulce Fire Station.

The assailant, an off-duty firefighter also with the Los Angeles County Fire Department, then set fire to his own house. He was later found deceased in a small pool outside the home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The captain was transported to the hospital in critical but stable condition. Investigation into the incident continues.

Fatality status is provisional and may change as USFA contacts State Fire Marshals to verify fatality incident information.
