1 dead in stabbing from group fight


SAN DIEGO — Authorities are investigating Saturday after one person was stabbed to death in a group fight in Logan Heights, police said.

The San Diego Police Department received a call around 3:43 p.m. about a group of males fighting and at least one person armed with a knife at the corner of 29th Street and Clay Avenue.

When officers arrived to the scene, they found an unresponsive man lying in the roadway with apparent stab wounds to his body. Police performed lifesaving measures until the victim was transported to a local hospital by San Diego Fire-Rescue personnel, where he was pronounced dead just before 4:30 p.m.

Lt. Andra Brown confirmed SDPD was not able to identify the victim but she did say he was in his 20s.

The group of men drove away westbound after the incident in a gray Nissan Altima with silver rims while others ran toward some apartments just to the north of the scene, according to authorities. They are all described as men in their early 20s who were generally wearing dark or gray clothing.

Police closed off nearby streets as the investigation continues. 

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
