Death in Hollywood Under Investigation; Neighbor Said He Heard 'Screaming for Help'

Posted October 2

— A death in Hollywood is under investigation, and while officials have released little details so far, a person who lives nearby told KTLA he heard cries for help shortly before police arrived Sunday afternoon.

Police responded to the site of a person's death near Fountain Avenue and North Gower Street just after 2 p.m., authorities said.

Officials from the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office could be seen in video footage removing a body from a multi-unit apartment building in the 6100 block of Fountain.

However, authorities have not released any details surrounding the death or the deceased person's identity, and they have not said whether a crime is suspected.

Still, a man who lives near the apartment building told KTLA he heard someone crying out just before police came.

"I heard someone screaming. And it sounded violent so I came outside to see what it was," Andrew Sullivan said. "And I didn't see anything. The screaming stopped. I didn't think anything of it."

Sullivan said he couldn't tell whether it was a male or female voice, but he said it "definitely" sounded like "screaming for help."
