The following incident took place this morning at Golden State Dispensary on Venice Blvd.  Per online reviews shown below… not known for good customer service.

Mar Vista: The Los Angeles Police Department, West Bureau Homicide Detectives are asking for the public’s help in providing any information that would lead to the arrest of the suspect(s) responsible for the robbery of a marijuana dispensary that left a man dead.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and pronounced the male victim dead at the scene.  The name of the victim is being withheld pending notification to next of kin.

Prior to the shooting a witness saw a male and a female enter the location.  Both the male and female were wearing hoodies.

Anyone with additional information is urged to call the Los Angeles Police Department, West Bureau Homicide, at (213) 382-9470.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call the L.A.

The victim has been identified as Anthony Brown, 24 of Venice.

Move Your Car Saturday Or Enjoy The Tow!

Saturday is the Annual Christmas Run – and if you park your car Friday night on Pacific or part of Venice (see map) your car will be towed as of the wee wee hours Saturday morning. Tell your newb neighbors (or not) – signs don’t elaborate on the impending parking doom. The run is awesome though. Not the running part – but the costumes. 

Homicide Victim Found In Santa Monica – Crime Believed To Have Happened In Venice

Two nights ago Santa Monica PD requested LAPD to respond to 1548 5th St., a low income housing facility – where a male suffering from what are assumed to be gunshot wounds died at the scene. That call came out about 2:30 a.m. Before he died it was determined that the crime happened in Venice, possibly Oakwood. I had several messages that day regarding a number of incidents – which is typical. People see police or hear something, gunshots … screaming…airships… and they want to know what is going on. If you heard gunshots or a crazy fight Tues night / Wed am around midnight to 1 a.m. – LAPD would love to know. Right now I have no info on victim or the rest of the crime. Will try to follow up – but like the other homicide last week on Windward where the suspect lived in our hood – details are few and far between until an arrest is made. This is why it is important that if you see something, say something. Solving a murder can sometimes boil down to an obscure tip. 

Surveillance Video Of Altercation That Led To Fatal Stabbing

First view is at normal framing, then zoomed in on group.
The victim is dressed in black and is facing away from the camera near the rear of the car. She appears to have what may be the suspects cell phone and is using it, you can see the screen illuminate her face. Prior to this on the video the victim was standing with the group and talking for a long time. They seemed to know each other. Then the victim seems to toss the phone, which appears to go into the car with the screen lit. The suspect then immediately turns and grabs the victim and stabs her. They go out of frame, then the group all pile in the car, the suspect then appears in frame, agitated, runs to the front of the car. You can see the knife in her hand… then she adopts this weird march, and seems to tuck the knife into her shirt, she gets in the passenger seat and they haul ass out of there, leaving the victim to die.
