Officers responded about 6:50 p.m. to a report of a stabbing in the area of Sunset Boulevard and Bates Avenue, said Sgt. Douglas Bowler of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Northeast Division.

They arrived to find two male victims, who were transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where one of them died, according to the sergeant. The other victim was expected to survive after being “slightly injured,” Bowler said.

The two men were not immediately identified.

The double stabbing occurred after an incident, on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, that was being investigated as a road-rage episode, the LAPD said.

Two people involved in the attack, described only as a black woman and a white man, remained at large, according to Bowler. Their vehicle was said to be a black SUV with mud flaps and a sticker on the rear window.

No other information was available.
