The 43-year-old Burbank man who was shot to death outside his apartment building Thursday on Providencia Avenue was described by a neighbor as a barber who enjoyed barbecues on his porch with his wife, two small children and large extended family.
The victim, identified as Antwan “Tony” Haroun, was shot multiple times just before 11 p.m. as he returned home from work, authorities said.
Burbank homicide detectives on Friday continued to investigate possible leads and a motive.
“I’m a little shocked,” said CJ Feldbau, who has lived in the complex with Haroun’s family for four years. “I’m more worried and concerned for the family.”
Feldbau was watching television with a friend Thursday evening when he heard four gun shots echo through the stairwell.
“We hunkered down, locked up,” he said. “Soon after — blood-curling screams.”
The screams, he said, persisted for 30 minutes to an hour.
When Feldbau walked down the stairs to see what had happened, he said he saw Haroun on the ground, suffering from three gunshot wounds to his head and one to his torso. Two police officers and Haroun’s wife were at the scene.
