"So, across the street from my house they are running this, like, crazy poker game, right?," DeVine explained, referring to the night of the incident in question. "Where the people were rolling up in like Lamborghinis and Bentleys and Rolls-Royces."

"I see these dudes and it is fun to sit and watch, [so] me and my wife, we’re sitting up on our balcony, and like, this looks crazy," he continued. "This is where it gets sad. Someone was murdered there."

DeVine did not clarify whether he or his wife witnessed the alleged shooting, but the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed on Thursday, June 8, that a shooting did take place around 2 A.M. early Wednesday morning.

The victim of the shooting that the L.A.P.D. referenced was pronounced dead at the scene and was later identified as a 39-year-old man from Florida named Emil Lahaziel.

"The suspect produced a handgun and fired multiple shots and those shots struck the victim," a Los Angeles police officer told an outlet at the time. "The suspect fled the scene east in a vehicle."

It is not clear if this is the same person DeVine referenced in his story and no arrests have been made.

However, a neighbor interviewed by reporters did tell them that she believed there had been a poker game involved.

“During the party, the valet let one of the guests know that somebody had arrived and was outside and wanted to talk to him,” she said. “So, the guest left the party, left the house, came outside and there was a squabble. The guy in the car shot the guest.”
