A 21-year-old Hispanic male died today from his injuries after a 3 a.m. attack on Hollywood Blvd. near Cherokee Ave. The motive of the attack is unknown but the suspects are described as two male blacks in their 20s wearing black shirts and blue jeans, according to LAPD Officer Julianne Sohn. Approximately 300 officers were on patrol in the Hollywood Division last night. NOTE: Although both CBS and ABC (they updated their story, but not title tag headline) report that the man died, the LAPD says he is in critical condition.
