Burbank, California — The Burbank Police Department released video in fatal police shooting of 30-year-old David William Kahler of Las Vegas. The fatal shooting happened at about 5:20 a.m. March 8 at the Quality Inn Burbank Airport, 2255 N. Buena Vista Street after police were called out for reports of a child wandering the parking lot alone in shorts and without shoes. The investigation has revealed that the young child, an 8 year-old boy, was the step-son of Mr. Kahler. The child has since been reunited with his biological mother, with the assistance of the Department of Children and Family Services, and they have returned to Nevada. The child was with Mr. Kahler, with the permission of the mother.
The investigation has also revealed that neither Mr. Kahler nor the child had any connection to the Quality Inn or the City of Burbank. Based on video footage, as well as officer and witness statements, the investigation has revealed that Mr. Kahler pointed a loaded semi-automatic handgun at the officer, which precipitated the officer involved shooting. Evidence shows that Mr. Kahler did not discharge the firearm which was in his possession. Only one officer discharged his firearm. The firearm recovered from Mr. Kahler was reported stolen in Las Vegas. At the time of his death, Mr. Kahler was on probation in the State of Nevada and had an extensive criminal history. The crimes included burglary while in possession of a firearm, domestic violence, narcotics violations, and theft.
