The first homicide of the year in the San Fernando Valley, and the third in Los Angeles County, was the result of a drive-by shooting on a quiet residential street early Thursday. At the dawn of the new year, two Burbank police officers making a traffic stop heard several shots about a quarter-mile away. The officers drove to the 1400 block of Clybourne Avenue, where residents, who had also heard shots, flagged the officers down and told them of a drive-by shooting down the street.

No apparent limits to a promising future or hints that this "courteous, soft-spoken young man," was concealing a dark and violent side.
