An unhoused veteran is in custody after sheriff’s deputies arrested him for the stabbing death of a fellow resident of a Brentwood encampment last week. It was the second killing in less than six months at the camp, where dozens of veterans live on the sidewalk outside the gates of the Veterans Affairs campus in West LA. The violence drew attention from politicians, and raises questions some local residents and advocates have been asking for months: When and where will the veterans find long-term housing?
