A man shot and killed his ex-girlfriend's two teenage daughters, then turned the gun on himself in a Panorama City murder-suicide, police said.
The Saturday night shooting stemmed from an argument between the 46-year-old man and his 41-year-old former girlfriend at an apartment in the 8500 block of Cedros Avenue, said Det. Richard Wheeler of the Los Angeles Police Department Valley Bureau.
The man first shot the woman's son, who managed to escape. He opened fire on the girls, then shot himself, Wheeler said.

Neighbors said they heard gunfire, followed by a woman screaming.
