The man killed by Glendale police early Friday morning during a shootout was reportedly firing his pistol while walking down the street.
No officers were hurt in the shootout, although a patrol car was struck by a bullet, said Sgt. Tom Lorenz, a spokesman for the Glendale Police Department.
The gunman had not been identified early Friday, he said.
The incident will leave sections of San Fernando Road and Glendale Avenue closed for much of the morning as the investigation proceeds, Lorenz said.
The incident began at 2:30 a.m. with a call of shots fired near the intersection of Brand Boulevard and San Fernando Road.
Once there, they spotted a man armed with a pistol. He fired at the officers, who returned fire, Lorenz said.
