LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — In the early hours on Saturday, the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a reported home invasion in Granada Hills. At a residence on Swinton Avenue, three to four armed men in their 20s attempted to burglarize the house while the occupants, including a homeowner, a grandmother, and a toddler, were inside.
The situation escalated when one of the intruders aimed a weapon at the homeowner, who then used his own firearm, resulting in a shooting. One suspect was fatally shot and pronounced dead at the scene, while the others fled. The investigation revealed signs that an additional suspect might have been injured.
The homeowner was temporarily detained by the police, and their current legal status is unclear. A vehicle involved in the incident was later found by the police.
This incident highlights ongoing security issues in the neighborhood, with multiple burglaries and break-ins happening over the last few months.
