RIP ANTHONY RIVAS (September 27, 1990 – May 31, 2023)

The decedent was working as a security guard on Wednesday at an illegal casino in the 3300 block of Cahuenga Boulevard in Studio City when two men wearing ski masks entered through the back of the building at around 3:40 a.m. They were armed with rifles.

Upon seeing them, Rivas took a handgun out of a holster on his waist. That’s when one of the men pointed his rifle at Rivas and shot him multiple times.

The two perps searched the building, but could not find any money. They then both ran out the rear entrance and fled the area.

When Los Angeles firefighters arrived for a call about a shooting victim, they found Rivas dead on the scene.

Formal pronouncement of death was made on at 4:25 a.m.
