A machete-wielding porn performer went on a rampage at a Van Nuys production facility, killing one of his former co-stars and badly wounding two other men, Los Angeles police investigators said Wednesday.
Police said the assailant, porn actor Stephen Clancy Hill, was last seen driving a blue Toyota RAV4.
The attack was reported around 10:20 p.m. Tuesday at Ultima DVD Inc., a video distribution business where Hill did production work and apparently lived, police said.
Police said they are investigating whether Hill was angry with his colleagues after learning that he was being fired and evicted, The Los Angeles Times reports.
According to Daily Mail, p olice found a dried pool of blood near one of the building's doors as well as several drops of blood leading toward a row of parking spaces.
The weapon used in the attack was said to be a prop being used in one of the company's current productions.
Ultima is reported to be a studio specialising in fetish films, particularly those involving the cast hurting one another.
'Hill wasn't performing up to standards and a few weeks ago he was told he would have to leave,' LAPD detective Joel Price said.
