A man was fatally stabbed at a Metro Purple Line station in Koreatown on Sunday following an argument, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Officers were called to the Wilshire/Normandie station around 5 p.m. after receiving reports of a stabbing. There, they found a Hispanic man suffering from multiple stab wounds.

“Some time during that argument one of those individuals pulls out a knife and stabs the other one several times,” said Lt. John Corina with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

“There was a lot of blood on the scene and he was conscious. He was on his knees and clearly struggling,” said Jan, a witness. “There were several people around trying to help and just in shock.”

The suspect fled to a nearby Carl’s Jr. restaurant and hid in the bathroom, officials said.

“He went into the bathroom to clean up. Once the deputies got here on scene, the deputies tracked him down to the Carl’s Jr. restroom,” said Corina. “An employee said he was still in the restroom. They tried to get him out and he barricaded himself about 45 minutes, took a little while.”

The deputies were able to talk the suspect out and he was taken into custody, according to Corina.

The attacker is described as a black man in his 50s or 60s.

The Wilshire/Normandie station will remain closed until the investigation is complete.

Bus shuttle service is available from Wilshire Boulevard and Vermont Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue.
