Authorities Friday identified one of three men found fatally shot at a home in Glendale, and continued their efforts to solve the triple homicide.
Police responded about 12:15 a.m. Thursday 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 identified Friday as Deandre Sims, 26, of Los Angeles, the coroner’s office reported.
Authorities withheld the names of the other men, one in his 30s and one in his 40s, pending notification of kin. One of those men lived at the location, Suttles said.
One body was found in the garage area, and the others were found inside the home. A motive for the shooting was unknown, and the circumstances were unclear, Suttles said.
Early in the investigation, detectives were exploring all possibilities, including whether the men “may have shot each other,” but later determined that the case was a triple homicide, Suttles said.
But he said there was not believed to be any lingering threat in the area.
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.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call police at 818-548-4911, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
