Suspects killed in gunbattle with guard at Canoga Park strip club ID'd

CANOGA PARK, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner identified two would-be robbers allegedly shot and killed by an armed guard at a gentlemen's club in Canoga Park early Saturday.

David Hernandez, 23, of Canoga Park, and 24-year-old Winnetka resident Marvin Gonzalez were identified as the suspects fatally shot at Xposed Gentlemen's Club early Saturday morning, officials said.

Police believe Hernandez and Gonzalez attempted to rob the strip club when gunfire erupted between the suspects and a security guard.

The would-be robbers were pronounced dead at the scene, police said, and the guards and a DJ were wounded with non-life threatening injuries.

City officials said the strip club is a problem location with numerous reports in the past involving prostitution and other crimes. Officials even tried to shut the club down.
