A man was fatally stabbed in the parking lot of a Shell Gas station in Santa Ana and the suspect remains at large Monday morning, Santa Ana Police reported.
Officers responded to the Shell Gas station at 710 E. Dyer Road, near Grand Avenue and the Costa Mesa (55) Freeway about 9:10 p.m. Sunday because of a 911 call about a stabbing victim, according to Santa Ana Police Sgt. Rosa Ponce de Leon.
“The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead,” Ponce de Leon said. The man’s name was withheld pending family notification.
“This is an active investigation and detectives are at the scene and pursuing leads,” Ponce de Leon said early this morning.
The motive for the stabbing was not known, and no description of the assailant was immediately available.
Anyone with information on the stabbing was urged to call the Santa Ana police at (714) 245-8665.
