The homeowner, armed with a shotgun, confronted the suspects and scared them off before they were able to steal anything from the Tarzana mansion, police said.

TARZANA, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Los Angeles police responded to a Tarzana neighborhood Tuesday night to investigate an apparent break-in attempt at a mansion.

AIR7 HD was over the scene near Wells Drive and Geyser Avenue just before 11 p.m. as police officers were still at the home investigating.

A shattered sliding glass door in the back of the home was visible as officers searched for evidence.

Police say the homeowners were inside their residence when the break-in happened. One of the homeowners, armed with a shotgun, confronted the suspects and scared them off before they were able to steal anything, police said.

It's unclear how many suspects were involved. No arrests have been made.
