Two prisoners who escaped in Hollywood Hills still at large
KABUL (Reuters) - A NATO helicopter crashed during a battle with the Taliban in Afghanistan, killing 31 U.S. soldiers and 7 Afghans, the Afghan president said on Saturday, a devastating toll and easily the worst single incident for foreign troops...
SANTA CLARITA ( KTLA ) -- Three people have been found shot to death in a car in the Bridgeport neighborhood of Santa Clarita Friday.
There was still no sign Saturday of two prisoners who escaped while clearing brush in the Hollywood Hills.
At this point, officials suspect the men were picked up by someone, so they are unlikely to still be in the immediate area.
The prisoners were reported missing about 2 p.m. Friday in the 8400 block of Mulholland Drive, nestled between Studio City and West Hollywood Hills. The two prisoners were part of an inmate fire crew with the Ventura County Sheriff's Department, according to Officer Sara Fadden of the Los Angeles Police Department.
One prisoner is described as a 19-year-old male Latino, 126 pounds and 5 feet, 4 inches tall. He has shoulder-length curly hair and was wearing a khaki long-sleeve shirt and shorts, possibly green in color, Fadden said. The second inmate is described as a male Latino, about 19 years old and at least 6 feet tall, with black hair.
