1 person killed, others critically injured in Corona stabbing, police say

CORONA, Calif. (FOX 11) – One person was killed and several others critically injured in a stabbing late Monday afternoon in Corona, police say.

One person was detained at the scene in connection with the crime and police say there is no threat to the public.

Just before 5 p.m. on April 15, police officers were called to investigate a report of a fight occurring in the 1300 block of Turquoise Drive, but while driving to the scene, a stabbing occurred, according to the Corona Police Department.

One male victim was located in the street and pronounced dead at the scene, police said. It's unclear how many others were injured but authorities say the injured victims were taken to the hospital. Their condition is unknown at this time.

The identity of the person killed was not immediately released. Police do not know what sparked the fight and it's unclear if the person they took into custody is the suspected stabber.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information on this homicide is asked to get in contact with the Corona Police Department.

Officers on their way to a fight reported at about 4:54 p.m. on the 1300 block of Turquoise Drive learned it was a stabbing as they were en route to respond, said Corona Police Sgt. Chad Fountain.

He said police found one male victim dead and at least two other people who had been wounded. At least two ambulances were summoned to transport those injured to a nearby hospital.

One male suspect was detained by officers at the scene of the stabbing. Fountain was unable to immediately release that person’s identity or if he was arrested, but said detectives were not searching for any other suspects.

“We’re not looking for anybody, and there is no threat to public safety at this time,” he said.

A witness told TV station KCAL9 the attack may have been related to a domestic disturbance, and the suspect appeared to have been locked out of a home, according to a witness.

The investigation into the incident was ongoing, and investigators were expected to remain in the area until late into the evening. A section of Turquoise Drive between Zircon and Topaz streets was closed off as of 8 p.m. Monday.
