Man Arrested in Saturday Night Murder on Fairfax Avenue


Officers in the Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Division have arrested a suspect in the death of a man on Saturday on Fairfax Avenue.

Arrested was Pablo Arizpe, 37, who has been charged with murder and is being held in lieu of $2 million bail.

Officers responded to reports of gunfire on the 800 block of Fairfax north of Melrose Avenue around 9:30 p.m. They found a dead man “suffering from unknown trauma to his neck and throat,” according to an LAPD statement.The dead man, who is African-American, has not been identified. He is said to be between 40 and 50 years of age.

Nearby residents say the man died in front of Fat Dog, the restaurant at 801 Fairfax Ave. It isn’t clear exactly where the attack occurred.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story, relying on information from the LAPD, said the incident occurred at 9:30 a.m. In fact it occurred around 9:30 p.m. The story has been corrected to reflect that.

No, it was Fat Dog. We walked by after seeing a movie at the Grove and oddly the police had no problem with us walking directly through their crime scene to attempt to get to the bar. They said nothing to us as we walked by wondering what happened.

Isn’t the location in front of Okie Dog?
