Sheriff's office looking for witnesses in Aldon Smith stabbing

The Santa Clara County detectives want to talk to anyone who attended the weekend party that ended with two people being shot and 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith getting stabbed.

Smith was treated and released after suffering multiple wounds in the melee. The 49ers on Saturday said that he was "recovering comfortably" from his injuries. The two other victims, both men, suffered gunshot wounds. One has been released from the hospital, the other is expected to be released shortly, according to Sgt. Jose Cardoza of the sheriff's office.

Cardoza said that more than a hundred people were filing out of the remote home in the hills east of San Jose when deputies arrived after 2 a.m. Saturday morning. There were so many people that the sheriff's office sought backup from San Jose police and the California Highway Patrol.

The party goers were interviewed at the time but no one revealed what happened. There are no suspects at this time. Cardoza asked anyone with information to call the sheriff's office at 408-808-4500 or the anonymous tip line at 408-808-4431. Tips also can be left anonymously at tips@sheriff.scccgov.org
