Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department MPs told the station that a man hospitalized for Covid-19 brutally attacked his 82-year-old roommate with an oxygen tank.
Authorities confirmed that the victim of the attack died the next day from injuries sustained in the incident.
The two men did not know each other before they were hospitalized and authorities said they are trying to determine the motive for the attack.
The suspect was arrested and charged with murder. The improvement depends on the age of the victim. None of the men have yet been named by the sheriff's office.
The incident came amid a surge in coronavirus patients hospitalized in California as 600 more people were admitted to the state due to the virus, according to Newsweek on Monday.
The total number of coronavirus patients hospitalized in California stood at nearly 8,000 as of Tuesday as the state recorded a total of 2 million confirmed Covid-19 cases since the pandemic began.
Although Covid-19 vaccines are already being distributed across the state, Newsom urged California residents on Sunday to continue social distancing measures to limit the spread of the virus and the number of hospitalized residents.
"Until vaccines are available across the state, it's important that all Californians do their part in stopping the surge by staying home and wearing a mask when they go out to do important work and needs." Newsom said on Sunday.
Since the pandemic began, California has recorded at least 1.97 million cases of coronavirus and more than 23,254 deaths.
There are now more than 18.2 million people in the United States who have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University. The death toll has reached 322,849.
