Los Angeles police responded to a call around 8 p.m. in the 500 block of South Orange Grove Avenue and found one man dead in an apparent suicide, and an injured female. Los Angeles police Officer Cleon Joseph did not describe the extent of the woman’s injuries other to say she had been transported to a hospital.

City firefighters said they have no records of being called to that location for a gunshot or other injury tonight.

Amanda Burden, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, said the woman had injuries sustained by a blunt force trauma to the head. She also reported that the woman was expected to make a complete recovery.

The police investigation is ongoing, Joseph said.

    This is a feel good story. The guy responsible failed to kill or permanently injure the woman, and he’s dead so we don’t have to pay to feed, clothe, and shelter him in jail. Win-win.

    They were apparently a Korean couple in their 30’s. The Park La Brea complex is home to many Koreans. My guess would be this is another example of the human toll the recession is inflicting on us. Too bad he apparently didn’t have the support that is needed when you are down.
