A man was stabbed to death at a Pasadena residence Wednesday and a suspect was taken into custody at a nearby Target store shortly afterward, after the store was evacuated by police.

Pasadena Police Department officers were called about 2 p.m. to a residence in the 1000 block of North Mentor Avenue, near Bell Street in the area of McDonald Park, and they found a man suffering stab wounds at the scene, according to a department statement.

The victim was pronounced dead at the residence. His name was withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The suspect fled the scene prior to the arrival of police, but an investigation allowed authorities to track the suspect to a Target in the 3100 block of East Colorado Boulevard, according to Pasadena police.

Officers evacuated the Target, and police were able to take the person into custody about 4:10 p.m., ABC7 reported.

Police did not release the suspect’s identity, and a motive for the stabbing had yet to bet determined.

An investigation was ongoing.
