Eric Griggs, a 54-year-old black man, died Tuesday, Sept. 27, after he was stabbed in the 2000 block of West Adams Boulevard in Jefferson Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
On Sept. 20 about 9:45 p.m., Griggs got into an argument with a significant other in an apartment, said Los Angeles Police Det. Rick Gordon. A witness intervened and, in defense of the woman, stabbed Griggs, police say.
Griggs was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 6:30 a.m., according to coroner’s records.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office declined to file charges against the person, and police are considering the incident a justifiable homicide.
