Manhunt For Aliso Viejo Murder Suspect Expands Into Venice

ALISO VIEJO (CBSLA) — A manhunt continues Friday morning for a 26-year-old man suspected of shooting four people, two fatally, in an upscale Aliso Viejo neighborhood.

Luke William Ferguson is armed, and is believed to have stolen one of his victim’s cars, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

The shooting was reported at 2:48 p.m. Thursday in Ashbury Court in the Hamptons community of Aliso Viejo. Four people were shot, two fatally.

The coroner identified one of the people killed as 51-year-old Lisa Cozenza. A man who was also killed in the shooting has not yet been identified.

Neighbors say the people killed were Ferguson’s father and his father’s girlfriend.

Two other men — a 23-year-old and a 48-year-old — were taken into area hospitals, in serious condition.

The shooting has shocked the quiet neighborhood, where residents were asked to stay in their homes. Anyone who needed to reach or leave their homes were escorted into and out of the neighborhood.

An argument took place at the home the night before the shooting, according to neighbors.

“Some kind of argument, and then around 2:30 or 3 is when everything just kind of went…eek,” one neighbor said.

Ferguson is described as a white man, 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, with a tattoo on his right shin of 90291 – the zip code for Venice, where a search is also underway. Police say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who sees Ferguson can report his location by calling 911.
