An attempted murder suicide at Affordable Storage, a self-storage facility in Burbank, Calif., on Monday left a man dead and his wife injured. Police believe the 50-year-old man shot his wife before turning the gun on himself. The man died at the scene, while his wife, 47, was transported to a local hospital with gunshot wounds, according to news reports. Police did not release the names of the individuals involved.
Police at the scene were unaware of the circumstances behind the shooting, according to sources. Burbank police officer Joshua Kendrick said the woman was expected to survive, and there didn’t appear to be any outstanding suspects, according to the “Los Angeles Daily News.”
A “big rig” truck and SUV parked near each other were part of the crime scene, but investigators didn’t have details on who owned the vehicles, police Lt. Eddie Ruiz told the “Burbank Leader.” The man died inside the cab of a tractor trailer, according to MyNewsLA.com.
The facility at 3615 San Fernando Blvd. reportedly specializes in large truck and RV storage.
Detectives requested an Armenian translator to help them take a statement from the injured woman, who was taken to Holy Cross Medical Center, according to the “Burbank Leader.”
The investigation is ongoing.
