A standoff involving the LAPD and murder suspect Stephen Hill, aka porn actor "Steve Driver," is underway in the 8000 block of Azul Drive in West Hills, according to Officer April Harding. It is believed Hill's location was passed on to authorities by a tipster who spotted Hill. Unconfirmed reports from the scene indicate Hill is in possession of the murder weapon, and may be threatening suicide. Hill, 34, has been on the run since Tuesday night, when he fled the scene of the crime at Ultima Entertainment, an adult industry video facility in Van Nuys. In an unprovoked outburst, Hill allegedly used a prop samurai sword to stab three co-workers; one victim, fellow porn actor Herbert Hin Wong, aka "Tom Dong," died of his injuries.
