Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau detectives are responding to the intersection of Santa Anita Avenue & St. Joseph Street, Arcadia, to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a male adult and the wounding of a female adult.
The male victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the female victim was transported to a local hospital in unknown condition.
