Hollywood Mayhem on Labor Day: Shootings, Stabbings, Murder

The last holiday weekend of summer went out with a bang as three people were stabbed, one fatally, and three men were shot early Monday.

The mayhem started about 1:15 a.m. when three victims were shot outside a club at Ivar Avenue and Yucca Street, police said:

The wounded got themselves to hospitals, cops said, indicating the injuries were not life-threatening.

Police say some kind of beef started inside the venue but that the shooting happened on a sidewalk.

Also at about 1:15 a.m., a 31-year-old and a 22-year-old were stabbed outside Leila's Pizza and Deli on Hollywood Boulevard at McCadden Place, police said.

The men were expected to be okay. It's not clear what sparked the attack.

Then, at 6:40 a.m., two men who know each other had an altercation outside the Best Western Hollywood Plaza Inn (2011 N. Highland Ave.), police said.

The victim was fatally stabbed, cops said, and the suspect was found about a block from the hotel.

No IDs in that case were released.
