The sheriff’s department says 50-year-old Patricia Harrison was stabbed multiple times in the church parking lot in Gardena on Wednesday night. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police identified the suspect in her killing on Thursday as 55-year-old Lynwood resident Kevin Darnell Dickson. They say he’s considered suicidal and armed and dangerous.
