Deadly violence rocked a Koreatown parking garage on Tuesday when a man fatally shot another man who had stabbed and injured a woman during a dispute, according to a preliminary investigation by police.

Officers were called to the 600 block of South Berendo Street shortly before 5:30 p.m. on reports that someone was assaulting another person with a firearm, according to Officer Tony Im, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

Following a preliminary investigation, officers believe that a man and woman were having a verbal argument in a parking garage of an apartment building. The man stabbed the woman and injured her, Im said.

The woman’s boyfriend then interrupted the attack and shot at the man, LAPD Sgt. Kevin Gruner said.
