YOUNTVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Two men are dead after an apparent murder-suicide in a Napa County vineyard following a bitter business dispute.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports Tuesday that Napa County sheriff's deputies are still investigating Monday's shooting in the famed wine region of Northern California.
The newspaper reports vintner Robert Dahl allegedly shot his former business investor, Emad Tawfilis, in a vineyard overlooking Highway 29, the main route through the region.
Dahl then fled into the wooded hills between Napa and Sonoma valleys and shot himself.
Kousha Berokim, a Los Angeles attorney who represented Dahl, says her client and Tawfilis had met Monday morning at Dahl's winery to discuss a loan dispute.
He says Tawfilis was suing his Dahl, claiming Dahl defrauded him out of more than $1 million.
