Porn actor allegedly kills 1, hurts 2 at LA studio

Police say a porn actor killed one colleague and injured two others with a prop weapon during a late night showdown at the Los Angeles studio where they all worked.

Updated 10:53 a.m. Police Detective Joel Price says the alleged attacker had been living at the adult entertainment business for several months but his colleagues told him he had to make other arrangements by Wednesday.

Price says Steven Hill attacked a colleague in the back of the building after work Tuesday with a machete-like weapon. Price says two others who heard the man's screams ran to help him and were also attacked before Hill fled the scene.

One of two people who tried to help died in surgery at a local hospital. The others are expected to survive.

The victims' names have not been released.
