A young man was found stabbed to death in the middle of the street not far from the Beverly Center early this morning.

Because he was found in the street, investigators initially thought that he had been hit by a car. But the man's body was covered in stab wounds, according to City News Service. He was found in the 300 block of North Orlando Avenue around 1:40 am this morning, but a videographer at the scene told CNS that there were blood stains near Oakwood Avenue about 50 feet from where his body was found.

The victim appeared to be in his 20's, but there were no other details available.

UPDATE 1:20 pm: Richard Herrera, 29, of Los Angeles has been arrested and booked for the murder, according to a release from LAPD. The victim's identity has been withheld but he is described as a 27-year-old Asian male. Police believe the pair got into an argument before Herrera stabbed the victim.
