Melvin Lee Bright, 39, was killed early Wednesday morning in a home in the 2000 block of West Avenue H-7, sheriff’s deputies said. Bright was a self-employed handyman, homicide detective Tim Cain said. His wife and three children were asleep when Bright was shot to death while investigating a noise he heard on the first floor of the family’s home. Cain said little is known about the circumstances surrounding the killing. He cited robbery as the most likely motive for whoever entered the home, but he would not confirm whether any property was taken. Investigators are seeking three suspects in connection with the killing. A large footprint was visible Thursday next to the door knob on the front door to the Bright’s house – however, the door itself did not appear to be damaged. Cain would not confirm whether the door was kicked in. The crime occurred in a quiet middle-class neighborhood on the west side of the Antelope Valley (14) Freeway north of Avenue I. A home security company distributed leaflets Thursday advertising free alarm installation on the block. A restored white 1950s Chevrolet Impala sat in the Bright’s driveway next to a raised basketball hoop. A sign on the home Thursday afternoon read: “R.I.P. We Love You, Diddy.” [email protected] (661) 267-7802160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
