  • The attacking suspect in an early Sunday morning barfight that spilled out onto the sidewalk died early yesterday morning. "During the struggle one man was stabbed by the suspect, who was subsequently stabbed by the victim, resulting in the suspect’s death," an LAPD release stated. The unidentified 43-year-old male hispanic victim was transported to the hospital for emergency surgery and was listed in critical but stable condition. To detectives, the case is pretty much closed.
