A man went on a stabbing spree that left three people injured in Hollywood before being fatally shot by police at a fast- food restaurant.

Firefighters and officers responded to a report of a stabbing in the area of Sunset Boulevard and Ivar Avenue, where the suspect stabbed a man riding a bicycle, authorities said.

The suspect then headed east, entered a Jack in the Box restaurant, and stabbed two more men, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Officers arrived and the man was shot after a failed attempt to subdue him was made with a stun gun, police said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene in the Tuesday incident.

His name was not immediately available. A media report said he was in his 30s.

Police said the stabbings were random and the man did not know any of the victims, who were taken to a hospital.

Two had critical injuries and the third suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, LAPD Officer Tony Im said.

A female was treated at the scene but declined to be taken to a hospital, Stewart said.

Video posted to social media showed people tending to a man at a table near a puddle of blood inside the Jack in the Box, while police guarded another man who was face down on the floor and motionless, a handcuff on one of his wrists.
