Formal pronouncement of death was made on Saturday at 5:36 a.m.
The decedent was shot dead by a homeowner during an attempted home invasion robbery in Granada Hills.
LAPD officers had been dispatched at around 5 a.m. to the 11400 block of Swinton Avenue on a call of “shots fired” inside a residence.
“When the officers arrived, they met with the homeowner … who stated he was inside his residence when three unknown males broke into his house,” police said in a statement. “The victim described the males as all wearing dark clothing, hoodies and masks.”
One suspect pointed a weapon at the victim, who told police he feared for his life and produced a gun and fired shots, striking one of the men.
“The victim then chased the remaining two suspects out of the house,” police said. “The suspects, who had arrived in a black BMW sedan, fled the scene without their vehicle.”
The wounded man, who died at the scene, was in possession of the victim’s property.
