Albert Dewayne Kyle, 49

Albert Dewayne Kyle, a 49-year-old black man, was fatally stabbed Saturday, May 26, near East 107th and South Main streets in Broadway-Manchester, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 3:30 p.m., Kyle was inside his apartment when he got into an altercation with two other people whom he knew, said Los Angeles Police Det. Nathan Kouri.

One of the other people had a knife and stabbed Kyle, who in turn stabbed his attacker.

Kyle stumbled outside and was shot by the second person, Kouri said.

The assailant who was stabbed, identified by police as Gerod Harrison, a 33-year-old black man, was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injures, Kouri said.

The shooter, identified by police as Dean Morgan, a 28-year-old black man, was not injured, Kouri said.

Both Morgan and Harrison were charged with one count of murder, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

Morgan also was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon and unlawful possession of ammunition, prosecutors said. The two defendants pleaded not guilty to all charges on May 30.

Morgan and Harrison are due back in court June 27, according to online court records.
