Posted by Fay Arfa | Oct 10, 2017 | 0 Comments

A West Hollywood man was sentenced today to 14 years and four months in state prison for the stabbing of two victims at an apartment complex, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Keri Modder said Alexander Tor McDonald, 31, pleaded no contest on Oct. 2 to two counts of attempted murder and admitted a great bodily injury allegation in case SA087007.

On April 7, 2014, the defendant held three men at knifepoint inside apartments on Palm Avenue. As sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene, one man ran out with a wound on his neck followed by a second victim, the prosecutor said.

Deputies fired their weapons believing the second victim was the attacker, injuring the man that was bleeding and killing the second man, the prosecutor added.

The case was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, West Hollywood Station.
