One man is dead from what appear to be stab wounds. At this point in the investigation we believe the incident started in the area of Christopher Ct. and Santa Clara Ave. with the victim being assaulted. The victim ran through the neighborhood knocking on doors trying to get help with the suspect following him. He eventually ended up in the front yard of 1254 Santa Clara Ave. where he died.
The suspect is in custody with charges pending. His name is not being released at this time.
The victim’s identity, as well as the official cause and manner of death, will be released after the Mesa County Coroner’s Office completes its portion of the investigation and notifies next of kin.
