From the Burbank Leader:

HILLSIDE — An unidentified man shot himself to death Thursday morning at the intersection of North Sunset Canyon Drive and East Harvard Road, authorities said.

Police were called to the west corner of the intersection at about 11:40 a.m. after witnesses reported seeing the man turn the gun on himself, Burbank Police Sgt. Thor Merich said.

Officers have sectioned off several blocks of Sunset Canyon Drive and erected screens to shield views from the public as detectives investigate the scene of the shooting.

Witnesses said the man was heavy-set and had a gunshot wound to the chest, but police would not confirm their accounts.
