Three people are being sought Wednesday for the fatal stabbing of a pregnant mother in Venice.

A black SUV that matched the description of the one tied to Monday’s slaying of 22-year-old Jasmine Angelica Preciado was searched Tuesday evening in the 900 block of Millwood Avenue in Venice but police did not find any suspects.

Two women and one man were suspected of fighting with Preciado around 9:30 p.m. Monday before the Inglewood mother was found with stab wounds at 80 Windward Avenue, according to Los Angeles police Lt. John Radtke.

Arriving officers saw the mortally injured woman being held by witnesses. She was treated by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics before being taken to a hospital, where she died, Radtke said.

Family members told NBC4 that Preciado was three months pregnant and the mother of a 3-year-old girl.

Anyone with information on the crime was urged to call LAPD West Bureau Homicide detectives at (213) 382-9470, or (877) LAPD-247.
