A 49-year-old man was struck and killed at 8:20 p.m. last night when standing in an alley near 6th & Grand View Streets. "Investigation have very few leads and there are no description of the suspect vehicle or the driver," the LAPD said in a statement. MacArthur Park has various live-feed cameras like Hollywood Blvd. (and soon Ventura Blvd.) placed in the park, but lack of funding for maintenance led to inoperable cameras earlier this year. Officers at the local police station who are in charge of monitoring the cameras could not immediately say if the cameras were working or not this afternoon. If they were working, could they have helped this case any?
