An apparent burglary in the Northeast Valley neighborhood of Sunlund last night left one man dead and another person in the hospital. Police are searching for up to 10 suspects who may be involved in the incident, according to a spokesman over the phone. Details on that end are still sketchy, but the incident took place around 10 p.m. on the 9700 block of Sunland Boulevard. Apparently, the burglary was taking place when the resident walked into the home, according to the LA Times. He was pistol whipped and tied up. When another resident, who also happened to be the man's employee, tried to help him, he was shot dead.
