LOS ANGELES - Officials sought the public's help with an investigation after a security guard was beaten to death at a Hollywood nightclub early Sunday morning.
Los Angeles Police Department officers were called to Dragonfly Hollywood at 6510 Santa Monica Blvd., near Wilcox Avenue, around 2 a.m. following an assault with a deadly weapon call.
When they arrived, they were directed to the victim lying in the street who was not breathing.
Investigators said the victim was working as a security guard when a group of between 7 and 11 people in their 20s confronted him. At some point, the security guard lost his footing and fell to the ground. That’s when the suspects began kicking and stomping him before they ran away from the scene going westbound to Santa Monica Blvd., then southbound on Hudson Avenue.
The security guard was taken to a hospital, where he died from his injuries, police said.
