Beverly Hills police have made three arrests in the stabbing death of a man at a movie producer's home.

Lt. Shan (pronounced Shawn) Davis says Wednesday that three people were arrested after detectives worked around the clock on the case. Their identities weren't immediately released and there's no immediate word on a motive for the killing.

Officers found the body of Katsutoshi Takazato outside a Carla Ridge home at 6 a.m. Tuesday. The 21-year-old lived in the home, which is owned by producer Fuminori Hayashida.

Hayashida produced several movies in the 1990s, including "Lured Innocence" starring Dennis Hopper.

Davis says investigators aren't saying whether the victim knew the producer or suspects.

A call to a number listed as Hayashida's was not immediately returned.
