An employee of the Wilshire Country Club in Hancock Park was fatally stabbed by a co-worker Thursday night, police said.The L.A. Times reports that an argument broke out between two men who worked in the kitchen of the country club at around 8:45 p.m. During the argument, which had been going on for some time, Erick Antonio Hernandez stabbed 28-year-old Emmanuel Bravo with a kitchen knife.

"They just obviously didn't like each other," LAPD Lt. John Radtke told the Times. He also said that no patrons were in the restaurant at the time of the stabbing, but "multiple employees" were present.

Bravo was rushed to a hospital, where he died, according to the Daily News. Hernandez fled the scene meanwhile, but was arrested on murder charges in South L.A. on Friday. His bail is set at $2 million.

A spokesperson from the country club told KTLA, "It's a very close family here and it's a tough time. We're obviously still working through a lot and with the LAPD right now."
