(CBS/AP)
LOS ANGELES (CBS/KCAL/AP) Steven Hill, a porn actor facing eviction from a production studio, killed one colleague and injured two others with a movie-prop machete during a late-night showdown in Los Angeles, police said Wednesday.

Hill, who had been living at Ultima DVD Inc.'s distribution and production center for several months, attacked his colleagues Tuesday night after being told he must pack and leave by Wednesday, Los Angeles police Detective Joel Price said.

Hill is accused of stabbing a co-worker with a machete-type prop used in porn production at the building in the Van Nuys area, Price said. Two others who heard the man's screams ran to help and were also attacked before Hill fled the scene, Price said.

One of the two people who tried to help suffered a large wound to his torso and died in surgery at a hospital, Price said. The other victims were expected to survive, he said.

According to CBS affiliate KCAL, Hill fled the studio in a 1996 blue Toyota RAV with license 5YTC423, and was being sought by police.
