LOS ANGELES (AP) In a story on April 15 about the arrest of a man accused of setting a fatal fire at a Los Angeles music studio, The Associated Press, relying on information from police, erroneously reported that the suspect’s name was Eferem Demery. Los Angeles police now say the man’s first name is spelled Efrem.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Los Angeles police arrest man after fatal music studio fire
Los Angeles police have arrested a man on suspicion of murder in connection with a music recording studio fire that killed two people
LOS ANGELES (AP) Los Angeles police have arrested a man on suspicion of murder in connection with a music recording studio fire that killed two people.
The Los Angeles Police Department announced Sunday that officers arrested 28-year-old Efrem Demery after a Saturday morning fire at Top Notch Recordings in Universal City. Two other people were injured.
Police didn’t immediately release any more details. Jail records don’t indicate whether Demery is represented by an attorney.
Crews found heavy smoke when they responded shortly before 7 a.m. to the single-story facility in the Universal City area north of downtown.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
