The Los Angeles Police Department is asking the public’s help to identify four teenage suspects in connection with the fatal stabbing of a 33-year-old man in South Los Angeles.

Dominic Lord was attacked near West 89th Street and Western Avenue on April 1 after he stepped off a bus with four teenagers, according to the LAPD. The four suspects briefly argued with Lord as he backed away into the street, chased and then attacked him as he fell to the ground, according to video footage shared by the LAPD. While Lord was on the ground, he was repeatedly kicked and one of the suspects stabbed him. Lord appeared to stand up and rest his hands on his knees after the attack.

The LAPD received reports of an assault with a deadly weapon around 6 p.m., but before police arrived Lord was taken by the Los Angeles Fire Department to a local hospital, where he later died.

The LAPD said it was looking for two boys and two girls. The suspects were last seen heading east on Manchester Avenue, east of Harvard Boulevard, and are described as being between 14 and 16 years old, according to the LAPD.
