Police just released details of a shooting that occurred in West Hollywood on Monday and everything we're learning about the tragic event is just AWFUL!
It all started when Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department responded to an “assault with a deadly weapon, man with a knife” call at a WeHo apartment building.
