WEST HOLLYWOOD—The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced on Friday, December 13 that Kisu Brown, 44, who attacked a man in a convenience store with an ax in 2017 was sentenced to 9 years and 6 months in state prison.

Brown was confronted by a clerk in September 2017, at a convenience store in West Hollywood, while shoplifting. Another individual shopping at the establishment at the time of the dispute confronted Brown, which led to a physical altercation inside the store.

Brown exited the store, but waited outside for the victim, who he attacked with an ax, striking him repeatedly, including on the head, the prosecutor noted.

In April 2019, Brown pleaded no contest to one count of attempted voluntary manslaughter in case SA096420.

This case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Shane Michael and investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, West Hollywood Station.
