Gunman to Plead Guilty in Seal Beach Mass ShootingPolice believe a 21-year-old man in Mission Viejo killed his family and then turned the gun on himself. Police discovered the scene May 27, after a relative called 911. They believe the crime took place over a day earlier.

Monday, May 26, a neighbor in the family’s quiet neighborhood called 911 and reported hearing gunshots and the sounds of a man yelling. Another neighbor reported hearing what sounded like someone screaming early in the morning, saying the noise was so loud, she thought it was coming from inside her own home. Police responded to the area but didn’t see or hear anything suspicious and closed the call.

Michael Sheer, the suspected shooter, was 21 years old, attended a private high school, and graduated in 2008. He lived at home with his parents, Mark and Lydia Sheer, and his 15-year-old sister, Amy Sheer. He attended Saddleback College following high school, but dropped out after three semesters. Neighbors described him as a body builder and drummer who was a big fan of USC.

Mark Sheer had a consulting business where he held owners of start-ups get their businesses going. Amy Sheer was a freshman at Crean Lutheran High School. As of yet, police have no motive for the murder-suicide.
