Police in Burbank are looking for suspects behind the shooting death of a 48-year-old woman whose body was discovered overnight in Burbank, according to "Officers responded to a call of shots fired on the 4200 block of West Jacaranda Avenue," near North Toluca Park Drive, which is described as being in an "upscale Burbank neighborhood." The victim was found "on the ground in front of a home," and "pronounced dead at the scene." Police believe she may have been shot when she answered her front door, by a man dressed all in black who fled in a black Mercedes, reports MyFoxLA. This is the first homicide in Burbank in 2009.
