Responding officers located a 30 year-old male, who is a Burbank resident, with at least one gunshot wound to the upper body. He was treated and transported to a local hospital where he is being treated for, what appear to be, non-life threatening injuries.

Officers and detectives spoke with several witnesses which led them to the Burbank Boulevard Overpass. This is where police believe a “car-to-car” shooting took place and resulted in the victim’s injuries.

The suspected shooter is described only as a male, with his vehicle described as being black in color and last seen westbound on the overpass.

The Burbank Boulevard Overpass, which is a bridge over the Interstate 5 Freeway, was closed during the on-scene investigation, but has since reopened to both vehicle and passenger traffic. The freeway off-ramps have also reopened.

There is a second related scene in the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot, 900 N. San Fernando Boulevard, which is being processed. Investigators believe the victim made his way to that parking lot after the shooting, before ultimately driving to Grismer Avenue.

Investigators will be working into the morning processing evidence, interviewing witnesses and following any leads that develop.

Anyone who witnessed the shooting, or was in the area is urged to contact investigators at (818) 238-3210 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477) to remain anonymous.
