The two masked men who broke into a Lancaster home and killed a 35-year-old man early Tuesday did not choose their target randomly and may not have been motivated by robbery, as detectives first assumed, a Los Angeles County sheriff's investigator said Wednesday. Sheriff's officials originally said the slaying of Jonathan Knight appeared to have been part of a home-invasion robbery.

A 17-year-old boy and a 28-year-old man were shot and wounded after an argument at a nightclub early Saturday, authorities said. The shooting was reported at 12:45 a.m. at a gas station parking lot in the 100 block of East Avenue J, about a block from the El Dorado nightclub, said Sheriff's Sgt. John Perez.

The Lancaster City Council tonight will consider a modified plan to combat crime associated with rental housing, after a proposal to charge landlords a yearly fee of $95 per unit was opposed by the local Realtors association. The plan, devised by City Manager James C. Gilley, would still impose a fee on many landlords to help pay for added police.
