Michael Lajun Green, from Valley Glen, has been arrested on suspicion of shooting his ex-girlfriend in the head at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City early Monday morning and then fleeing with the couple’s two children.
Green allegedly met up with his ex-girlfriend in a room at the lodge attempting to reconcile but instead began to argue. The argument turned physical, and then, shortly before 5 a.m., the suspect pulled out a handgun and shot his ex-girlfriend in the head.
The woman was taken to the hospital immediately. Her injuries are not life threatening.
Police issued an Amber Alert on Monday afternoon for the children, 6-month-old Zyler Green and Maaliyah Green, who is 1 1/2.
A short time after the alert was issued, police detectives found Green and the children in Canoga Park. The children did not appear to be hurt.
Green will likely face attempted murder and kidnapping charges which are very serious charges and can result in over 20 years in prison.
