An early morning stabbing in Stockton has left one man dead, and another female wounded, Stockton police say, with no suspects in custody at this point.
At 1:58 a.m., police responded to the 500 block of Garfield Avenue after a report of someone being stabbed. There they found a victim, a 26-year-old African-American male, and transported him to San Joaquin County General Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries, according to Detective Roseann Clark.
But after the subsequent investigation, police determined that the victim was driven to the Garfield Avenue location after a fight broke out outside the Waterfront Warehouse on the 500 block of West Weber Avenue. It was during that altercation that police believe the victim was stabbed.
Later on, police also discovered a second victim, an African-American female in her teens. She also suffered a stab wound, though her in injuries were not deemed life-threatening at the time.
Police continue to investigate and said several people were detained from the Waterfront Warehouse location and were being questioned.
It continues a recent string of violence in the area. Two groups of men opened fire during an altercation outside a popular family restaurant located inside the Waterfront Warehouse in Stockton, police said.
Earlier this week, two groups opened fire during a fight outside a popular family restaurant inside the Waterfront Warehouse. No one was hurt in the incident, but police are seeking help in identifying six suspects caught on surveillance cameras.
