LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A man went on a stabbing spree that left three people injured in Hollywood today before being fatally shot by police at a fast- food restaurant.
Firefighters and officers responded about 2 p.m. to a report of a stabbing in the area of Sunset Boulevard and Ivar Avenue, where the suspect stabbed a man riding a bicycle, authorities said.
The suspect then headed east, entered a Jack in the Box restaurant, and stabbed two more men, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Officers arrived and the man was shot after a failed attempt to subdue him was made with a stun gun, police said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
His name was not immediately available. The Los Angeles Times reported he was in his 30s.
Police said the stabbings were random and the man did not know any of the victims, who were taken to a hospital.
Two had critical injuries and the third suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, LAPD Officer Tony Im said.
A female was treated at the scene but declined to be taken to a hospital, Stewart said.
Video posted to social media showed people tending to a man at a table near a puddle of blood inside the Jack in the Box, while police guarded another man who was face down on the floor and motionless, a handcuff on one of his wrists.
