West Valley Home-Invasion Robbery One of three suspects killed

Los Angeles: On Friday afternoon, August 1, 2008, three suspects forcibly entered a home located in the 24300 block of Burbank Boulevard in West Hills.

At around 2:45 p.m., the family of four was at home when the suspects kicked in the front door while armed with firearms. One family member in another part of the house was alerted to the intrusion and saw the suspects confronting his family. He armed himself with a personal firearm and approached the group to defend his family from the armed intruders. The suspects immediately began firing their weapons in the direction of the armed family member. The armed family member returned fire and struck one of the suspects. Two remaining suspects ran out of the home, but the wounded one fell to the floor just inside.

The suspects entered an unknown make and model silver sedan and drove off eastbound on Burbank Boulevard. They are only described as male Blacks in their early to mid twenties.

The injured suspect was pronounced dead at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds. The decedent was transported to the LA County Coroner’s Office where he will undergo an autopsy. He has not been identified and detectives are awaiting a fingerprint comparison by the Coroner’s Office.

Anyone with any information regarding the incident is asked to call West Valley Homicide Detectives at 818-374-7730. On weekends or during off-hours calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free hotline at 1-877- LAWFULL (529-3855).
