He provided the paper with an apartment number at 612 N. Kings Road that it says checks out as the unpublished site of the violence.

The source identified the vendor as 27-year-old Bernard Khalili and said he believed he was visiting the two other victims, brothers Pirooz Moussazadeh, 27; his brother, Shahriar Moussazadeh, 38, when the attack happened.
The man, however, also said he believed Pirooz Moussazadeh, who he knew as "Petey," was "was in the game" too -- meaning he was believed to have had a part in the medical marijuana industry as well.
He said Khaliki "had just harvested" some weed and that, possibly, irooz Moussazadeh had helped.
The Los Angeles Times reported that sheriff's detectives were indeed looking at robbery as a possible motive in the triple shooting deaths of the men, which were reported about 9:15 p.m. Thursday. But the topic of medical marijuana had not come up n the Times' reports.
