GLENDALE (CBSLA) – Three men were found shot to death inside a home in a Glendale neighborhood overnight Wednesday.

At 12:17 a.m. Thursday, Glendale police responded to 911 calls from neighbors about shots fired in the 1300 block of Columbia Drive, a narrow hillside road. They arrived to find an open garage door at the home and entered to find three men dead inside. One man was found dead in the garage and the other two were inside the home itself.

The victims were all between 20 and 50 years old. Their names were not immediately released. They are not believed to be related.


Police believe one of the victims lived in the home. Neighbors told investigators that a father of four has resided at the home for more than 15 years. They said he shared custody of his children, none of whom were in the home at the time of the shooting.

“He’s a great dad, a great dad, so I pray it’s not him,” neighbor Erika Howard said.

There was no sign of forced entry and investigators do not believe this was a random crime, but that the victims were targeted.

“Any time that you have shots that are fired, and you have three deceased individuals on site, it’s very rare to not have any witnesses,” Glendale police Sgt. Dan Suttles told CBS2. “But in a small residential area like this, it’s very rare for something like that to happen. But at 12:17, most people in a small residential area are asleep.”

No arrests have been made. There was no word regarding whether police had identified any suspects.
