When officers arrived on the scene they found a deceased male on the overpass, who had suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. A handgun was located at the scene.

Burbank Police Department Detectives responded and took over the investigation. The detectives will be working with the LA County Coroner’s Office on this case, which is being treated as a suicide investigation at this time.

The Olive Overpass was shut down for a period of time during the investigation, but opened to vehicle traffic after the completion.
