Detectives Investigating Fatal Stabbing On South Coast

Detectives are trying to figure out what led to a murder in Ventura County. Oxnard Police were called to the 100 block of Eliza Court just after 8:30 Monday night by reports of a stabbing.

They found a seriously injured man on the ground. He was taken to a hospital, but died in surgery.

The name of the 49 year old Oxnard man hasn’t been released. Investigators think some type of a confrontation led to the stabbing, and are looking for witnesses.
