Police kill man whose stabbing rampage injured 3 on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood – Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles police fatally shot a man in a Hollywood fast-food restaurant on Tuesday, just moments after the man stabbed three others in an apparently unprovoked rampage.

The assailant — described as a man in his 30s — began about 2 p.m. by stabbing a man who was riding a bicycle along the north side of Sunset Boulevard near Ivar Avenue, said Sgt. Frank Preciado, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

The attack occurred in a popular corridor along Sunset Boulevard, near the ArcLight Cinemas, Amoeba Music, and the Los Angeles offices of CNN. 

CNN correspondent Maeve Reston, a former Los Angeles Times reporter, tweeted that the suspect ran down Sunset Boulevard and tried to stab people across from the CNN office. The office, she said, had been placed on lock down.
