Man shot and killed during robbery outside Hollywood restaurant
A man was shot and killed during an attempted robbery outside a popular Hollywood restaurant early Tuesday morning. The shooting happened around 2:10 a.m. outside Bossa Nova Brazilian Cuisine in the 7180 block of Sunset Boulevard. The victim, a 23-year-old, was sitting in his vehicle when he saw...
I live in this area. Recently, I was assaulted at that Ralph's next door. This weekend, I witnessed an older woman being assaulted by an erratic man at Rite Aid down Sunset at Fairfax with the staff doing every thing they could to get the guy out. Now this.
I have always felt fairly independent, and very rarely have felt afraid when going out. That has changed. As a woman, I no longer feel safe in this area.

I’d bet there’s overlap between the smash & run last night, all of the reported thefts and gun crimes last night, and this particular case.
I used to live in this neighborhood. Lady Gaga's dogwalker was shot just a few blocks away from here earlier this year. I got the fuck out.. Sad to see the area going downhill like this.
I live 2 blocks away and Bossa Nova is my go-to restaurant. After midnight there’s always fancy cars lining up for their pickup orders. It blows my mind the restaurant doesn’t close until 3am.
lmfao where are all the "community leaders" stepping up and calling out the violence?
Where are all the marches calling for an end to this type of behavior?
The guy was just enjoying a weekend night out in LA. Is it too much to ask for that we have that freedom?
If the city can’t protect its own citizens then give them the ability to defend themselves. 400 CCWs issued a year in LA county is criminal.
Serious/ maybe naive question - is anything being done or actual conversations with leaders / communities about the rise in violent crime in the area? Between Hollywood / melrose / weho it feels like a completely different world than even a few years ago
No description of the killers ?
Murders are at a 10 year high soon LA will be like Chicago unless the leadership changes it’s policies.
This is what "criminal justice reform" looks like in practice. Lenient sentencing and focusing on reformative justice rather than punitive justice only works if the offenders are willing to become non-criminal members of society. Unfortunately too many offenders are not willing to leave the criminal lifestyle.
The world isn't perfect - in any system you're either going to crack down too hard on some people who don't deserve it or you're going to be too lenient on those who deserve to do time. This is what the latter looks like - rising crime with non-criminal citizens being the victims.
I'd like to see harsher penalties for violent crime and crimes committed with guns. Unfortunately that will never happen in this city because the "disparate impact" such penalties will have aren't going to produce the "right" optics for the politicians that run this city.
I recently moved from Hollywood to Burbank and I am still confused why transplants move here. It's city prices for a pretty shit standard of living for a city. Not very walkable and the "walkable" areas are either extremely expensive or kinda dangerous like Hollywood. I lived next to Trader Joe's off Vine and first month during pandemic I heard gunshots every week. My gf lives at bottom of street across road & always waking up in morning to multiple citizen alerts about stabbing/robbery/gunshots less than a mile away.
Holy fuck. Is this sub brigaded by racists or what? I have never seen so many coded and not coded comments on this sub before. Very clearly, some of you are blaming the BLM movement for this. It’s fucking disgusting. Crime exists because of the disparity of income and oppression of people, not because someone is black. You people are fucking gross and I fucking hate every single one of you that equates this crime to the unrest that happened after innocent black people were murdered. Y’all are seriously shitty humans
