Man fatally stabbed in exclusive Beverly Hills neighborhood [Updated]

Beverly Hills police are searching for a suspect wanted in a fatal stabbing early Tuesday in the exclusive Trousdale Estates area.

At about 6 a.m., officers responded to reports of an assault on the 1800 block of Carla Ridge, said Sgt. David Perez of the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Police found a male assault victim, whom paramedics pronounced dead at the scene, Perez said.

Beverly Hills police and the Santa Monica K-9 unit are conducting an area search for the suspect. The name of the victim was not immediately available.

“This is a very active and fluid situation,” Perez said.

[Updated at 11:25 a.m.: There have been three homicides in Beverly Hills since January 2007, according to Los Angeles County coroner's data collected for The Times interactive Homicide Report. In that time period, no homicides had taken place within one mile of the location of Tuesday's fatal stabbing.]

Everyone should start getting use to this as poverty rises in the USA. People who look like they have money on them are going to start becoming targets as people become hungry.

Description of the man? ... please!

this is 1/2 block from my home. The local news reports are giving out inaccurate info- no surprise. We were told to stay inside and lock all doors and windows. Swat team is still around. I was able to leave for a short while and return with no problem.

HAHAH @KEN. I can tell you're a wise person. please MORE, please do explain how the world works.
