ONLY ON 8: Family of man, woman killed in Henderson remembers loved ones

Local News

Twenty-eight-year-old Melisa Mason and 40-year-old Robin Mccomb were killed at their home in Henderson near Major Avenue and Warm Springs Rd. on last Friday. 

Henderson Police say Mason and Mccomb died from blunt force head injuries.

Thirty-six-year-old Roger Tindell was arrested for the murders early Wednesday morning. 

“They’re both just two great people. Melissa and Robin both would never do anything to deserve this,” said Nathan Lobato, Mccomb’s nephew. 

Lobato says the two met Tindell at a rave seven years ago. He always suspected something was ‘off’ about Tindell, but he never knew it would lead to this. 

“It’s like a bad dream. I still don’t want to believe this. This sucks, you know. I really wish that I did something more,” Lobato said. 

San Bernardino Police responded to a call of a shooting in Yucca Valley. Authorities say Tindell shot a man then left the home with a woman, who is later identified as the mother of his unborn child. 

In his Facebook live, Tindell puts a bandana over his face, a hat on his head and points his gun at the camera.

The chase ended with a shootout between deputies and Tindell. Tindell then collided with a sheriff’s patrol car and is expected to survive. 

“They pushed me. They pushed me too far,” Tindell says.

Henderson Police say they have not found a motive for the murders. 

“When everything was done, they came out and they told me that there were two bodies. I still didn’t want to believe it,” said Angela Lobato, Mccomb’s sister.
