At least 4 stabbed in West Hollywood Target, woman arrested

Posted: Updated:

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) - A woman has been arrested after allegedly stabbing and wounding at least four people in a Target store in West Hollywood.

Los Angeles County fire Inspector Fredrick Stowers says at least one of the victims was in critical condition but he didn't know the conditions of the others.

The sheriff's office says 35-year-old Layla Trawick started stabbing people, apparently at random, on Monday afternoon.

Sheriff's Sgt. Josh Mankini says an off-duty deputy who was shopping pulled out his gun and ordered the woman to the ground. She was arrested with the help of private security guards. Mankini says customers fled the crowded store in fear after seeing the gun, not realizing the armed man was a deputy.

Mankini says the woman stabbed three women and a man with a large blade about the size of a kitchen knife.
