Santa Ana Police Department officers responded to a call of subjects fighting in the 1900 block of S. Main. Upon arrival, they found a male victim lying on the sidewalk at Main and Commercial with an apparent stab wound to his chest. The male was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. The victim was identified as 26 year old Paul Anthony Garcia, with a last known address in the City of Irvine.
