Two homicides this morning: Norwalk stabbing, Sun Valley shooting

Homicide detectives were called to the scene of two deaths Tuesday morning, one involving a stabbing in Norwalk, the other a shooting in Sun Valley, police said.

In Norwalk, a man was found with stab wounds at about 6:50 a.m. at the intersection of Studebaker Road and Ferina Street. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner's office said the man has not yet been fully identified and appears to be in his 50s. There was no immediate word of any suspects or arrests.

The homicide marks the second of the year for Norwalk, according to an L.A. Times analysis of homicide data for that period.

In Sun Valley, a man was found shot to death near the northern border of North Hollywood.

The body, found at about 5:20 a.m. near the intersection of Cohasset Street and Denny Avenue, was found in the street next to a bicycle "and it looked like he had been shot," said Los Angeles police spokesman Richard French.

French said investigators believe the shooting could be gang-related. Police believe the man, who was not immediately identified, was in his late 20s.

The homicide is the second of the year in Sun Valley, according to The Times' Homicide Report. The last was Jordan Charles Palomino, 19, who died Jan. 12 after being shot in the 9000 block of Beck Avenue.
