Los Angeles police Tuesday evening were investigating a suspected gang-related attack that left one man dead from multiple stab wounds in the Pico-Union neighborhood.

The knife attack was sparked by an argument between two reputed gang members about 2 p.m in the 1500 block of South Normandie Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The victim was stabbed repeatedly. His name and age were not released.

Police took a man in his 20s into custody in connection with the attack, Officer Karen Rayner said.

Since January 2007, at least 102 homicides have been reported within two miles of the slaying scene, according to The Times Homicide Report database.
