The victim was treated at the scene by Burbank Fire Department Paramedics and transported to a local hospital for treatment. He has since been released from the hospital.

Investigators interviewed the suspect and witnesses and identified a second person, a 27 year-old Burbank resident who was also shot at, but not struck during the shooting.

Based on the information obtained, detectives learned the suspect and the victims know each other and this incident stemmed from an altercation between them a few days before the shooting. The suspect in this shooting has been identified as 20 year-old Christian Taylor Young.
