He must be so distraught…

Former Eagles bassist and founder Randy Meisner has been placed on a 72-hour psych hold, according to reports.

The musician apparently threatened to kill himself after his wife Lana's violent accidental death on Sunday night, and authorities have held him for his own protection.

According to law enforcement sources speaking to TMZ, Meisner — who has a history with substance abuse and violent threats — was "distraught and unstable."

Evidently, he made a credible enough suicide threat that police thought it best to immediately take him in for a psych hold.

Investigators are still looking at Lana's death as being accidental — they believe she was rummaging through a closet to find a pair of shoes when she moved a rifle bag and, somehow, the trigger was activated, firing the gun and killing her instantly.

So, so sad all around.

This is so sad.

An 18-year-old man named Henry Bartle was arrested and charged on Sunday with criminally negligent homicide after the gun he was cleaning accidentally discharged, killing a seven-month-old boy.

The incident, which took place in Rome, New York, claimed the life of Nathaniel Hitt, the child of Bartle's girlfriend.

Allegedly, the man was cleaning his 12-gauge shotgun when, according to the Rome Police Department, he tried to stand with the loaded weapon inadvertently aimed in the infant's direction.

By the time police arrived to the scene, the accidental shot to "the upper body area" of the baby had long since done its damage.

Bartle is currently being held on an unspecified bail, after having been charged in the death.

Our thoughts are with everybody involved in this awful, awful tragedy.
