Driving home from an errand in the Valley today, I saw that my sideroute to Hollywood was closed off at Mulholland Dr. and Cahuenga Blvd., with traces of yellow (police line?) tape waving from nearby trees. A couple news trucks were on the bridge over the 101 with their cameras/satellite dishes extended. Seemed odd, but I figured it might be a bursh fire.
Then I checked out Jill Leovy’s The Homicide Report:
Hollywood: A black or Latino man was found lying face down with multiple gunshot wounds on Mulholland Drive south of Barham Boulevard early Monday morning, March 12. Detectives believe he was shot at about 5:30 a.m., but had little other information as of early Monday. The place is where Mulholland Drive curves up the hill from alongside the 101 Freeway in Cahuenga Pass.
I’d love to speculate on this, but will leave that for the commenters. Has anyone seen any other news reports with more info?
