SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A young man was killed and another was injured Monday night in a stabbing in the Lincoln Park area, police said.

According to San Diego police, officers were called to Kennedy Park (4825 Ocean View Blvd.) at around 6:45 p.m. in response to reports of a fight.

When officers arrived, the fight was over and those involved had left the scene.

However, police learned that two 19-year-old males that were involved in the fight were taken to a local hospital with “sharp force injuries.”

One victim, a 19-year-old Hispanic male, died from his injuries, police said. Another 19-year-old Hispanic male suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police said the fight at the park stemmed from an earlier altercation at a nearby taco shop, but no other details were immediately released.

Police are asking anyone with information on the incidents to call the Homicide Unit at 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
