A man was found dead early Saturday morning after he was shot several times on the front lawn of a home in Glendale. The shooting was reported at around 3:55 a.m. in the 1600 block of The Midway Street, close to Glendale Community College, according to KNBC.

Neighbors allegedly heard five shots. When officers arrived they discovered a man aged somewhere between 20 and 30 years old dead in a home's front yard. The people who live in the home, reportedly, have no idea who the deceased man is, according to the L.A. Times.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and Glendale Police has shuttered access to The Midway Street while they conduct their investigation. Officers canvassed neighbors for information, and checked out cars parked on the street that they believe might yield clues as to just what happened at 3:55 a.m. on Saturday morning.

Incidentally, this is the first homicide in Glendale in 2016.
