Luke William Ferguson Held in Aliso Viejo Double Homicide

A 26-year-old man accused of fatally shooting his father and his father's girlfriend and of wounding two others in Aliso Viejo Thursday was held without bail over the weekend.

Luke William Ferguson was booked into Orange County Jail after being apprehended in Inglewood following a high speed chase Friday afternoon.

He was in a stolen car and packing a handgun, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

A report of shots fired sent deputies to 6 Ashbury Court in The Hamptons community of Aliso Viejo around 2:50 p.m. Thursday, when four victims of gunshot wounds were found.

Lisa Cosenza, 51, and Luke Ferguson's 59-year-old father Douglas Ferguson, both of Aliso Viejo, died from their injuries. She formerly was a Daily Pilot advertising director.

Unidentified men ages 23 and 48 were taken to a local hospital in serious condition.

A search for the shooter originally took law enforcement to Ventura, but the suspect was later spotted in Inglewood driving at a high rate of speed, according to deputies, who joined with Inglewood police officers in conducting a traffic stop that led to Luke Ferguson being taken into custody.

He was being held on suspicion of double homicide and double attempted homicide.
