COSTA MESA, Calif. (June 12, 2024) – The Costa Mesa Police Department (CMPD) is investigating a fatal stabbing that occurred last night.

Last night, June 11, 2024, at approximately 11:00 p.m., CMPD officers and Costa Mesa Fire & Rescue responded to a possible assault with a deadly weapon in the 1700 block of Placentia Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found a 22-year-old Hispanic man with stab wounds lying on the ground. First responders attempted life-saving measures, but the victim died at the scene.

Officers began their investigation and learned that a second victim, a 19-year-old Hispanic man, had been attacked minutes prior in the area of Placentia Avenue and Shalimar Drive.

The second victim suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital by family members. CMPD investigators believe the same suspect(s) were involved in both incidents and are possibly gang related.

This is an open investigation, and no further details are available at this time. No arrests have been made in this case. Anyone with any information is asked to please contact Detective Ramon Hernandez at 714-754-5097.
