The name of the man killed in a bloody knifing outside a pot dispensary in South Sacramento on Wednesday has been released this morning by the Sacramento County Coroner.
The man was identified as Jesus A. Galvan-Mendoza, 24, of Sacramento.
Galvan-Mendoza was one of three victims stabbed outside the R&R Wellness Center on Quinta Court near Stockton Boulevard. Two of the victims went by private vehicle to a local hospital, including Galvan-Mendoza, who was pronounced dead at 12:04 p.m.
Police said the altercation began when the three stabbing victims argued with a man outside the marijuana business. The argument over gang affiliation escalated into the knifings, police said.
Police said the suspect also tried to stab a person who tried to intervene. The suspect, identified as Nester Ardon, 21, fled but was caught near 24th Street and Fruitridge Road.
