Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau detectives have responded to the 45100 block of Loma Vista Drive, Lancaster, to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of a male, White adult.

Detectives have learned that Lancaster Station deputies responded to a residence regarding a “Burglary Now, Person Shot” call. 

When deputies arrived, they located a male, White adult inside the residence who had sustained one gunshot wound to the upper torso.

The male, White adult was pronounced dead at the scene.

Preliminary investigation gathered at the scene revealed that a family was inside their home when they heard loud banging noises.

The male, White adult then entered the upstairs bedroom, where, fearing for his safety and the safety of his children, the resident armed himself with a handgun and fired one shot, striking the suspect.

No residents were injured.

It appears that the male, White adult suspect entered the residence through one of the downstairs rear windows of the location.

The investigation is ongoing and there is no additional information available at this time.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.  If you wish to remain anonymous, call “LA Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), using your smartphone by downloading the “P3 MOBILE APP” on Google play or the App Store, or using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org
