BURBANK (CBSLA) — A quiet Burbank neighborhood is in shock following the fatal shooting of a man inside a home there early Saturday morning.
The shooting occurred in a home on West Clark Avenue, near Pass Avenue, reports KCAL9’s Laurie Perez.
Officials told her the suspect remains at large. She spoke to neighbors as well as someone who works in the home.
The victim was shot and later declared dead after he arrived at a nearby hospital.
Police said they got a call just after 2:35 a.m. from the hospital reporting that a man arrived saying he’d been shot.
Neighbors told her there was a party being held at the home that went way into the night. Some said they heard a commotion just before the shooting occurred.
Witnesses said they were woken up by the commotion and they heard police yelling into the house.
“I heard someone talking loud so I opened up the window and basically I heard the police on a bullhorn saying come out with your hands on your head and or drop your weapon and come out with your hands on your head,” said neighbor Geoff Silverman.
Perez reported that there was a birthday party being held for someone who lives in the home.
Officials have not named the victim and only said he was a 21-year-old male. It is believed that he was a guest at the party.
Edith Garcia, who has cleaned the home for years, showed up to work only to find the house blocked off.
“I’m worried right now,” Garcia says, “because I need to know who or what happened. Of course, I’m worried. Because they’re a really nice family, really nice.”
Perez was told by neighbors that seven cars were also broken into last night — it was unclear if the incidents were related.
