Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Bureau Homicide are investigating the death of two men in Wilshire.

On Monday, March 29, 2021, around 4:35 p.m., Wilshire Area patrol officers responded to a radio call of a “Burglary Suspect There Now” in the 6600 block of Maryland Drive. While at scene, with the direction of neighbors, the officers located a male inside of a residence who had suffered stab wounds.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and pronounced the victim dead at scene.

A perimeter was established, and while officers were conducting a search, they located an additional male inside a near-by property.
