FRESNO,CA (KMPH) – An ongoing disagreement between neighbors has left a man dead in central Fresno, according to police.
Just before 7 o’clock on Wednesday night, Fresno police responded to a call of a stabbing on Hampton Way and Thesta Street, that’s near Ashlan Avenue and Fresno Street.
When officers arrived they found a man in his 50’s suffering from several stab wounds to the upper half of his body.
Officers and paramedics tried to give him CPR but he died at the scene from his injuries.
Family members and witnesses told officers that the man was stabbed by a neighbor that lives a couple of houses down the street.
Following that tip, officers went to speak to the neighbor and detained him as a possible suspect.
Police say that it appears the stabbing was the result of an ongoing dispute between the neighbors that started about a week ago.
Police are still searching for the weapon that was used in the murder.
