One person was hospitalized with a possible gunshot wound after a burglary at a home in a gated community in Encino on Tuesday, police said.
Someone called police just after 12:30 p.m. from the 5000 block of White Oak Avenue, saying he’d been shot, according to Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Officer Michael Ludwig.
Officers arrived and found one victim with a possible gunshot wound, but investigators were not sure if the person was the homeowner.
A gunman was last seen fleeing on foot. He was described by Ludwig as a white man wearing a baseball hat and a gray shirt.
Police were investigating the incident as a burglary, but LAPD has not said what was stolen.
