A 60-year-old man has been killed by his own son.
The man was fatally stabbed Thursday, by his 24-year-old son, at a home in Lynwood where the two were doing construction work.
Accoring to Press Telegram, police officers responded about 10 a.m. to a report of a stabbing victim in the 10700 block of McNerney Avenue.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reports that they found the victim inside the residence suffering from multiple stab wounds to his body, according to the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
The man died at the scene and his son was taken into custody, officials said.
“Further investigation revealed that the victim and the suspect were doing construction work at the residence on a bright afternoon. While they worked, they started arguing,” according to a sheriff’s department statement.
“The argument escalated and resulted in the son stabbing his father with a knife.”
It’s unclear what sparked the argument.
The knife allegedly used in the attack was recovered.
The suspect was booked on suspicion of murder and was being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Inmate Reception Center in downtown Los Angeles, according to the sheriff’s department.
Neither man’s name was immediately available.
