LEMON GROVE, Calif. – A double-stabbing left a woman dead Friday night after a fight inside her home in Lemon Grove, sheriff’s deputies said.

It happened just before 7:30 p.m. in the 2200 block of Dain Court, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. When deputies arrived they heard sounds of a woman screaming inside the home and forced their way inside after no one answered the door.

Once inside, deputies found a man and a woman on the floor with stab wounds to their abdomens. Both were taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital, where the woman was pronounced dead. The man underwent surgery and is expected to survive.

Witnesses reported an argument happened that led to the stabbing, a watch commander told FOX 5.

No arrests have been made in the incident, but deputies also say they aren’t searching for any outstanding suspects, the watch commander said. The Sheriff’s Homicide Unit has taken over the investigation.
