  • A 21-year-old construction worker was in custody for allegedly using a hammer to kill a fellow worker at a Silver Lake construction site, reports the L.A. Times.  The two men had gotten into a dispute before the 20-year-old victim was bludgeoned in the face in the 4200 block of Burns Avenue.
  • The Church on York in Highland Park shut down operations after a city Zoning Administrator denied it permission to host musical performances and operate a nightclub. “After nearly a year converting a 101 year old historic church into a community arts & music space, we have hit some severe roadblocks that have forced us to close our doors for good,” said a posting on the venue’s Facebook page.
  • Police are asking the public for help to find the hit-and-run driver who struck an 18-year-old man Wednesday night on Fletcher Drive in Atwater Village, says CBS2.

    Primary Cause: Unsafe Lane Changes”

    I would have thought the primary cause was unsafe street design! It’s amazing that intersection doesn’t have more collisions, given the angles and speeds those streets come together right next to all those freeway on and off ramps. One more reason why cyclists want to stay on Hyperion instead of Los Feliz.
