South Pasadena police fatally shot a man when they went to a Burbank home to serve an arrest warrant on a woman Thursday morning, authorities said.
Two officers went to the home in the 1400 block of Broadway to serve the warrant in connection with an identity theft case about 8:45 a.m., when something prompted police to open fire, according to Burbank Police Department Sgt. Cindy Guillen.
"Something went wrong," Guillen said.
A man who lived in the residence, apparently a back house, was killed. It's not clear if both officers fired on the man.
The sergeant released few details about the shooting, which did not leave officers injured.
The relationship between the man killed and the female suspect is not clear. She was taken into custody by South Pasadena police.
Burbank police are investigating the shooting.
The coroner's officer had not arrived on scene by early afternoon.
The area where the shooting occurred is a quiet residential neighborhood between the 5 Freeway and San Fernando Boulevard.
