View Comments

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Hollywood rock concert has ended with a stabbing and gunfire.

Los Angeles police say an off-duty officer was stabbed in the hand during a Wednesday night after-concert parking lot scuffle at the Hollywood Palladium. Investigators say the off-duty Los Angeles officer then shot the attacker.

City News Service says the officer and the suspect are being treated at a hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Sgt. Michael Ventura says the officer and another off-duty police officer were leaving after attending the concert by the band A Day to Remember.
