Active Shooting Investigation

Burbank, California – An investigation is underway following an early morning shooting that has left one person dead, and another in fair condition.

On August 22, 2022, at about 7:15 a.m., Burbank Police responded to the 2800 block of North Brighton Street regarding a possible shooting that had just occurred.  The first police officer to arrive encountered a male in the front yard of a residence who was suffering from significant injuries. The police officer began rendering aid to the male while awaiting the arrival of paramedics. The male was ultimately transported to a local hospital for medical treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

Simultaneously, Burbank Police received additional calls of a second male that was wounded in the 2800 block of North Lincoln Street.  The arriving officers were flagged down by a female, who told officers a male inside of her home had been shot.  The officers entered the home and located a male who was suffering from at least one gunshot wound.  Paramedics responded, but the male was pronounced deceased at the scene. 

The identity of the deceased is not being released at this time pending identification by the Los Angeles County Medical-Examiner Coroner’s Office, and notification to a next of kin. 

Investigators have conducted a thorough investigation thus far, which has included speaking with witnesses, canvassing the area for evidence, and collecting surveillance video.  The investigation revealed the identity of two individuals believed to be involved in the shooting, who fled prior to the arrival of the police.  Those two people have been located and interviewed. A gun believed to be involved in the shooting has been recovered.

This was not a random act and investigators believe all people involved knew each other. Detectives are actively looking for a motive and trying to determine what circumstances led up to the shooting.

No arrests have been made at this time, but the investigation continues and will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for review and filing consideration.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Burbank Police Department Investigations Division, at (818) 238-3210.
