One dead, three others injured after stabbing off Sunset Strip in Hollywood

Officers from Hollywood Division responded and upon their arrival they observed the suspect stabbing victims with a knife, "at which point an officer-involved shooting occurred", according to Ramirez.

A suspect was shot and killed by police after officials said he went on a stabbing rampage on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood on Tuesday.

The attack took place near a large entertainment centre and the CNN news headquarters in Hollywood, LA. Authorities swarmed Sunset Boulevard near Ivar Avenue at about 2 p.m. after receiving reports of a stabbing. "Just that kind of day where some guy was reportedly walking down street stabbing people outside your office", she tweeted.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said a fourth person was pronounced dead at the scene.

In the clip, several people can be seen sitting down as an elderly-looking man, who appears to have been stabbed in the arm, receives treatment from paramedics.

Helicopter footage showed blood still stained on the pavement Tuesday afternoon as police canvassed the scene.

She could not confirm how the other victim, or the deceased had been injured.

A short time later Reston added that the suspect tried to enter a nearby coffee shop but was stopped by a customer, and subsequently shot by police officers.
