2 arrested in connection to murder of 80-year-old man in Encino

Two people are behind bars after police say they were connected to the murder of an 80-year-old man in Encino.

Back on March 2, the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call in the 4500 block of Densmore Avenue. Upon arrival, LAPD found 80-year-old Stuart Herman inside the home with multiple gunshot wounds. Herman was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials initially thought it was a home burglary gone bad, but LAPD announced weeks after the incident that the Mar. 2 shooting will be investigated as a murder. Officials did not specify why the deadly incident is no longer being investigated as a home invasion despite authorities telling FOX 11 in early March that the victim's home was ransacked.
