Christine Calderon Stabbed, Killed on Hollywood Blvd; Transients Arrested

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.

    I am very familiar with Hollywood, especially the area where this happened.
    I always take pictures and videos of Hollywood Boulevard, the tourists, the characters and on and on.
    I like the boulevard, but it is a bit of a freak show.
    It's really not as dangerous as it is made out to be, but I would not allow kids to wander around by themselves.
    Here are two videos I made that show what Hollywood Boulevard is really like ...
