Three transients are in custody after the stabbing death of Christine Calderon on Hollywood Blvd.
LAPD says officers responded to a stabbing in the call in the area of Hollywood Blvd and Highland Ave around 8:30pm on Tuesday, June 18. They found Calderon suffering from stab wounds and she was taken to Cedars-Sinai where she died during surgery.
It appears she was with a friend taking pictures of panhandlers and they got in a fight when she wouldn't give them money, resulting in Calderon being stabbed in the torso.
The suspects names have not been released, but they are described as men in their 20s and 30s.
