Burbank Police Arrest Two in Homicide Investigation

Release supplied by Burbank Police Dept.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the March 2nd shooting death of 21-year-old Christian Guevara.

The shooting occurred in the early morning hours of March 2, 2019 in the 4000 block of West Clark Avenue. At about 2:36 A.M., Burbank Police Officers responded to Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank after a man was brought into the emergency room suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim, identified as Guevara, was transported to a local trauma center, but died as a result of his wound.

Investigators learned that Guevara had attended a party at the residence where the shooting took place. In the course of the investigation, Burbank Police Detectives identified a person of interest in the shooting. That individual was interviewed by investigators and confessed to shooting the victim. The motive and circumstances leading up to the shooting are still being investigated.

The suspect has been identified as Robert Stout, a 19-year-old man from Van Nuys. On March 4, Stout was placed under arrest and booked for murder. He is currently being held on $2 million bail.

In addition, a second suspect has also been arrested for his involvement in the crime. That suspect has been identified as Jose Valdivieso, a 19-year-old man from Northridge. Valdivieso was also booked for murder and is being held on $2 million bail.

The gun believed to have been used in the shooting has been recovered by investigators.

Formal charges against both suspects are pending review by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Original Story: Burbank police detectives are investigating a possible homicide that might have occurred during a party in the 4000 block of Clark Avenue Saturday morning, March 2.

There are few confirmed details at this point except that a 21-year-old man was dropped off at St. Joseph Medical Center with a gunshot wound and then had to be transported to a trauma center where he later died from his wound. 

Police were called to St. Joseph’s when alerted by the hospital staff at 2:36  am according to a release sent out by Sgt. Derek Green of the Burbank Police Department.

By the time detectives found out the possible location of the shooting and responded to the home on the 4000 block of Clark Avenue, most of the people from the party had left the scene. Detectives remained at the scene for several hours.

Police have not released the name of the victim. During the night police received no reports of gunfire heard in the area although there were several possible auto burglaries that also occurred in the same area during the night.

Burbank Police are investigating a traffic accident that happened at the intersection of Clark and Clybourn on Thursday afternoon.

One of the cars ran a stop sign at the intersection that has a four-way stop and struck the other in the side, knocking it off its wheels and on its side.

Fire Department personnel were dispatched to help the driver of the car escape.  She was able to stand up but unable to exit since the car was on its side.

Firefighters removed the front windshield so the woman could climb out.  She complained of arm pain at the scene and was looked at by Paramedics who did not have to transport her to the hospital.

The driver of the other car and a young child were in the other car.  The child was not injured and the driver complained of pain, but will see her own medical care.

Sudden Change in Weather Creates Problems on Clark Ave.

Burbank Police officer Brent Fekety was dispatched around 3:30pm to a reported tree onto a house in the 3400 block of Clark Ave. Upon his arrival, that’s exactly what he found as a city parkway tree, a huge one,  had uprooted and fell on a house and a neighbor’s car sitting in a driveway.

He checked to see if anyone was trapped inside the house, and finding all occupants out, he requested Burbank Forestry Division.  A short time later four trucks and a crew consisting of Juan Cardenas, Felipe Orozco, Hen Horn, Joseph Deagon, and Sr. Tree Trimmer Baudelio Loera were on the scene.

The parkway tree was a 60 year-old Modesto Ash.  It had uprooted, even with light winds blowing, and went falling down into the resident’s home.

Clark Avenue was closed for about two hours while the forestry crew cut up and removed the tree, leaving the stump for removal during the week.

Several residents out for their Sunday walk stopped and snapped pictures as the debris was whisked away and the street was reopened.

Because this is Burbank, the tree was cutup and removed quickly even though it was a Sunday.  There was no damage to either the house or parked car. This was the second time the forestry crew was called out on Sunday. They responded earlier in the day to another parkway tree uprooted on Screenland Drive.

The only loss appeared to be the shade from the tree.
