The Glendale Police Dept. Homicide detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect responsible for the shooting death of a 28-year-old Glendale
resident on Aug. 5.
At 9:20 p.m. neighbors called GPD stating they heard several shots fired in the 1200 block of Boynton Street in Glendale.
“Two men were visiting a [residence] in the area,” said Sgt. Dan Suttles, GPD spokesman. He said the two men left the residence and were walking a dog on their way to their car.
“They were walking northbound when someone approached them from behind and started shooting,” Suttles said.
The 28-year-old victim was struck by gunfire and fell to the ground. GPD responded and rendered first aid; however, the victim succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene, according to GPD.
A witness described the suspect as a male white in his 50s, about 5’10” tall, unshaven with a medium build, wearing dark clothing and prescription glasses.
The name of the victim will not be released at this time.
