Korean Man Stabbed to Death

Los Angeles: Homicide detectives are asking for the public's help in solving a brutal murder that occurred Saturday in the Koreatown area of Los Angeles.

On, July 15, 2006, around 1:45 a.m., Brian Chin, a 27-year-old Korean, was socializing with friends at a cafe in Koreatown, when they were confronted by a group of rowdy male and female Asians.

The confrontation became physical, causing Chin and his friends to walk away. The group of suspects, comprised of 9 male Asians, followed them to a parking lot at Chapman Plaza located at 6th Street and Alexandria Avenue. The suspects, armed with mace and knives, attacked Chin and his friends.

Several of the Chin's associates were sprayed with mace, while Chin was assaulted and stabbed by multiple attackers. The suspects ran from the scene.

The victim was taken to USC Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact The Asian Gang Unit, Gang Information Division, Detective Solomon or Detective Yueng at 213-847-1620. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855). Contact may be made anonymously if so desired.
