Three men were found fatally shot Thursday at a home in Glendale, and police were working to determine what led to the slayings and whether the men killed each other.
Police responded about 12:15 a.m. to calls from neighbors reporting shots fired in the 1300 block of Columbia Drive, just west of Adams Street, and found the men dead, according to Sgt. Dan Suttles of the Glendale Police Department.
One of the men was found in the garage area, and the others were found inside the home, according to police and reports from the scene. Suttles said one man lived at the residence.
The men were described only as being between 20 and 50 years of age. Their names were withheld, pending notification of their relatives.
A motive for the shooting was unknown, and the circumstances were unclear, Suttles said.
“We’re keeping our minds open to (the) possibility that there could be more than one shooter,” Suttles told reporters at the scene.
“We … are looking at this as a homicide,” Suttles said. “Quite honestly, we’re also keeping our minds open to the fact that all three individuals here may be the only three individuals involved; meaning that one person may have — they may have shot each other, and then they all died on scene. It’s a possibility.”
He said there is not believed to be any lingering threat in the area.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call police at (818) 548-4911, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
A neighbor told reporters at the scene that a man in his 40s lived at the home, and his children would frequently visit him. One report indicated that several renters also lived at the home.
