Roshon Dwayne Davis, 26, was heard yelling for help about 2:50 p.m. in an alley behind an apartment complex in the 3000 block of Gibraltar Avenue (map), according to a statement issued by the Los Angeles Police Department. Davis’s calls for help were heard by his wife and an on-duty LAPD sergeant on patrol.

The sergeant went to aid the victim and discovered that he was suffering from a stab wound, the statement said. Davis told the sergeant that he had been attacked at a nearby gas station, located at the intersection of Coliseum Street and La Brea Avenue.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics transported Davis to a local hospital, where he died as a result of his injuries.

No witnesses have been identified in the case.

Detectives from the LAPD’s Criminal Gang Homicide Division, and Davis’s family members, planned to discuss the case at a press conference on Monday afternoon.
