Glendale, CA–Three men were found shot and killed inside the home of an upscale Glendale neighborhood, which is said to be unusual for the area. Police found the three men when they responded to a call around 12:17 a.m Thursday of shots fired.
Authorities have identified the men as Leon Gough II, 50, of Glendale, Deandre Tyronne Sims, 36 and Christian Marty Moukam, 35, both of Los Angeles. The three men were found dead inside Gough’s home. All victims were Black males.
Neighbors are said to have recently reported suspicious activity in the area.
“When officers responded, they saw the garage door open to a home in the 1300 block of Columbia Drive. That’s where they found one of the men lying in the driveway, nearly inside the garage. Police said two more men were inside the home. All appeared to have died as a result of gunshots.
For part of the day Thursday, police weren’t sure whether the shooting suspect was among the three dead. But around noon, Suttles said investigators believed the murders were “not a random act of violence,” and that the shooter may have targeted the victims at the home, then left.”
The owner of the house is described by neighbors as a friendly, Black-male with dreadlocks who wears shades and speaks with a slight accent.
He has owned the residence since 2002.
The house where the victims were found had three security cameras, which authorities are reviewing. Police are also asking neighbors with surveillance systems for their help. Many residents have security cameras that can provide authorities with tips such as cars leaving the area.
No information has been released yet on a possible motive or suspect.
