“\ might help us identify people who might have been there,” Curley said. Before Khounchanh died, his girlfriend and an unidentified man were able to get the dying actor to a nearby car. The three escaped the theater parking lot in a hail of gunfire, authorities said. Khounchanh was pronounced dead at Citrus Valley Hospital in West Covina, authorities said. A problem that detectives face is the reluctance of witnesses to come forward, Curley said. Others are simply lying, he said. A witnesses to the killing, who refused to give his name for fear of retaliation, described a menacing group in the theater clearly on the lookout for trouble.

COVINA – Detectives are analyzing a video connected to the stabbing death of an aspiring actor earlier this month. The actor, Jimmy Khounchanh, 21, of Baldwin Park was killed outside the AMC Covina 30 Theater on North Azusa Avenue on May 7. “We’re reviewing a videotape,” Covina police Sgt. John Curley said. “There’s other evidence we are reviewing. It’s solvable. But, it’s not going to happen overnight.” Detectives are working to enhance the videotape, which does not show the actual killing. Several men and women who attended the night’s last showing of “Spider-Man 3” at the same time as Khounchanh may have been affiliated with an Asian street gang, authorities said.
