Six Killings Mark L.A. County's First of New Year

Los Angeles Sentinel, Posted: Jan 13, 2009

At least six people were killed in Los Angeles County in the first 12 hours of the new year--five shot and one stabbed, police said. Vannaly Tim, 24, and her boyfriend, Sarith Em, 25, were shot outside their Signal Hill-area apartment in the 1800 block of Gardenia Street about at 12:40 a.m. January 1, according to Long Beach police.

In Panorama City, Los Angeles police fatally shot a man, ending an early morning standoff.

On Christmas Eve, a recently divorced 45-year-old man ran amok with guns and a homemade flame-thrower, killing his ex-wife and eight other members of her family, before killing himself.

Ezra Davidson Jr., 46, was found slain at the couple's home on Trabuco Place in the Phillips Ranch area, Pomona police said.

In the Pico-Union district just west of downtown, a man was fatally stabbed in the 1200 block of West Eighth Street shortly after 10 a.m., police said. A second stabbing victim was taken to a hospital and expected to live. The New Year's Day killings in the city of Los Angeles, at the rate of at least one every two hours, are at odds with year-end statistics that showed a 27 percent drop in homicides in 2008 compared to the previous year.
