Stabbing Rocks College Community

Late Monday night, a tragic incident occurred at the University of Southern California’s Greek Row, resulting in a deadly stabbing. Authorities reported that a 19-year-old student was arrested following what appears to be a dispute between a man allegedly breaking into cars and a witness. The incident took place around 8:15 p.m. in the 700 block of West 28th Street, situated east of University Avenue, just outside a fraternity house.

The Los Angeles Police Department are currently conducting a homicide investigation into the event. According to their statements, there was an “altercation” between the witness and the individual who was reportedly breaking into a vehicle. On Tuesday, it was shared that the male victim was in the act of breaking into vehicles at the location when he was confronted and stabbed by the suspect.

The “victim,” believed to be in his 30s, was pronounced deceased at the scene by paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department. The “suspect” remained at the scene and was taken into custody by the police without any additional incidents.

The “suspect” has been identified as 19-year-old Ivan Gallegos, a Los Angeles resident. On Tuesday, authorities revealed that Gallegos was booked on suspicion of murder and is currently being held on a $2 million bond. It was later learned from the USC community that Gallegos is a student at the University of Southern California.

The altercation was Gallegos walked right into his car being broken into and defended himself because he felt his life was in danger. Remember it wasn’t that long ago that Johnny Wactor was shot when he interrupted thieves stealing a catalytic converter from his car in Los Angeles.

Currently, there is no initial court date indicated for Gallegos in jail records. It also remains unclear whether Gallegos has obtained legal representation or an attorney for his case.
