SWAT team surrounds Canoga Park house in search of porn actor suspected in deadly rampage

The Los Angeles police SWAT team on Saturday surrounded a home in Canoga Park, not far from the Chatsworth Nature Preserve, where a man matching the description of the porn actor suspected of killing one man and injuring two others at a Van Nuys production facility on Wednesday is threatening to jump off a cliff.

Officers were sent to the home in the 8000 block of Azul Drive around 9:30 a.m. The home sits on a rocky hillside. Details as to why officers were called are unknown, said LAPD Officer April Harding.

It was unknown whether the suspect's vehicle was also at the location. Stephen Clancy Hill, a porn actor who performs under the name Steve Driver, has been at large since Wednesday night when he allegedly used a machete-style weapon to stab and slash employees at a production facility in Van Nuys, authorities said.

At least one man was killed and two others were injured in the rampage. Investigators say Hill may have been angry after learning that he was about to be fired from his job and evicted from his living quarters. Hill was last seen driving a blue Toyota RAV4.

Jump.

I guess porn doesn't pay that well since he was homeless and driving a Toyota Rav 4.

If the guy threatening to jump is the porn spree killer, then let him jump! He's a troubled person and incarcerating him serves no purpose and is a financial cost on taxpayers.

Well, you should probably handle a person with kid gloves that you are about to fire and put on the street after he has ruined his life being in porn...he used his sword for real that day.

If that's what he wants, let him jump!

Anybody other than the LAT even remotely interested in this story?

Save the taxpayer money....jump....

what happened? he was such a good actor...

Save the tax payers the money and aggravation of a trial. Let him jump!!!! We know he killed the other guy. Do us all a favor!!!!

Save the taxpayers a few million in court and jail costs, and let him jump!

Wait, is this even news? Is there nothing GOOD happening on in LA today?
