What we know about the stabbing in Meadowview
Sacramento police say two men are dead after they were stabbed Friday morning after an altercation broke out between two groups in Meadowview. A third man who was stabbed and suffered life-threatening injuries remains in serious condition Friday evening, police said.
The stabbings occurred on 21st Street near 65th Avenue about 4 a.m. Friday, Sacramento Police department spokeswoman Officer Linda Matthew said.
The two fatality stabbed were driven to the emergency room at UC Davis Medical Center by a person at the scene of the stabbings, while the third victim knocked on doors asking for help until an ambulance arrived, Matthew said.
The age and identity of all three victims were not immediately known.
Matthew said no description of suspects was available as of 9:30 a.m. The number of possible suspects was also not known.
“We believe it’s an isolated incident,” she said. “We don’t know exactly their relationship, but we do think they were known to each other.”
A few blocks of 21st Street in the area of 65th Avenue were cordoned off as of 10:15 a.m. as homicide investigators remained at the scene.
Matthew said investigators do not yet know if the suspects fled on foot or in a vehicle.
An unoccupied silver minivan appeared to be stopped in the middle of 21st Street, with its doors closed, near the center of the area police were investigating Friday morning.
Matthew said detectives are working to determine what may have led up to the altercation that ended in the triple stabbing. She urged anyone who may have seen or heard anything relating to the incident to call the Sacramento Police Department’s non-emergency line, 916-264-5471.
