Police Seek Help in Probe of Slaying

Police are asking the public for assistance in their effort to determine who fatally shot a 28-year-old man in south Glendale last Saturday.
Officers responded to multiple reports of gunshots near Central Avenue and Laurel Street in the Tropico neighborhood at around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, according to the Glendale Police Department. There also were reports of a vehicle being driven erratically and running stop signs in the vicinity.
Police found that the driver of that vehicle had been shot, and after officers and members of the Glendale Fire Department attempted life-saving measures, the man was pronounced dead at Los Angeles County USC-Medical Center that morning.
Sgt. Christian Hauptmann of the GPD said detectives located the original scene of the shooting, but would disclose only that it was “relatively close” to where officers found the victim. Noting that the investigation is ongoing, Hauptmann also declined to say how many times the man had been shot and whether he lived in Glendale.
Police have not yet made any arrests in the investigation. This is the city’s fourth homicide investigation this year.
Those with any information are encouraged to contact GPD at (818) 548-4911. To leave an anonymous tip, contact the Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477, use the P3 Mobile App or visit lacrimestoppers.org.
