USC Student Stabbed to Death

*UPDATE*

On September 24, 2008, Los Angeles police arrested the man suspected of fatally stabbing USC student Bryan Frost. At around 10:00 am, Travion Terret Ford, 24, voluntarily walked into Parker Center police facility and was interviewed by Robbery Homicide Detectives. Subsequent to the interview and the course of the investigation, investigators determined Ford was responsible for the murder. Ford was arrested and booked at Men’s Central Jail. He is being held without bail. Ford is a Los Angeles resident and a documented gang member.

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Detectives from Robbery Homicide Division are investigating the murder of a University of Southern California (USC) student.

At about 2:30 this morning, three USC students were walking past a gated multi-unit apartment complex in the area of 28th Street and Orchard Avenue. While walking, a male Black yelled out to the students. Consequently, one of the students became involved in a heated argument with the suspect, which led to a physical fight on the ground.

After the fight, the suspect fled on foot and the victim, 23-year-old Bryan Richard Frost, a student in the USC School of Cinematic Arts, told his friends that he thought he may have been stabbed.

The victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where he died as a result of his injuries.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Robbery Homicide Division is handling the investigation, and authorities at the campus have issued a student alert. There is no evidence that this incident was gang related.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Robbery Homicide Detectives at 213-485-2155. After hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855) or by texting CRIMES (274637) and beginning the message with the letters LAPD. Tipsters may also submit information on the LAPD website, www.lapdonline.org. All tips will remain anonymous.
