Authorities are searching for the man who allegedly killed his neighbor in Van Nuys after the two got into a dispute, police said Friday.
Luis Aguilar, 54, was found lying on the ground unconscious inside his living room at a home located in the 7400 block of Woodley Avenue on Thursday night, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Officers responded to the scene around 9:30 p.m.
They had received a call about two men involved in a fight, and in a news release, the department described the altercation as a “neighbor dispute” that turned violent.
Aguilar was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
A witness told police the suspect had forcefully entered Aguilar’s home before hitting him multiple times, authorities said. The suspect, who has only been described as a Hispanic male, then fled the scene.
