Man fatally stabbed in South Los Angeles

A 50-year-old man was stabbed to death Saturday in the South Park neighborhood of South Los Angeles, authorities said.

Los Angeles police officers responded to a residence in the 300 block of East 56th Street about 12:45 a.m., Lt. Rick Stabile said.

The victim was found near the doorway of the house and pronounced dead at the scene, Stabile said. Authorities are searching for two male suspects.

The L.A. county coroner’s office would not release the victim’s name because relatives had not yet been notified.

No other information was given.
