A man was found dead in his car this afternoon in the parking lot of the shopping plaza that houses the 7-Eleven store at 7950 Santa Monica Blvd. near Hayworth.
That 7-Eleven store was the scene of an incident on Sept. 2 in which an apparently homeless man named Kisu Brady Brown attacked a man outside the front door with a hatchet. Brown was arrested on Sept. 6 on a charge of attempted murder.
Sheriff’s deputies responded around 4:30 p.m. today to a report that there was a dead man in a car in the parking area near the Los Tacos restaurant, which is adjacent to the 7-Eleven convenience store. A detective on the scene said there was no evidence of trauma. Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation at this point.
