SAN DIEGO (CNS) — Authorities Tuesday publicly identified a 60-year-old man who was fatally stabbed last weekend during a predawn dispute with another man in Kearny Mesa.
Patrol officers responding to a report of an assault found Edward Manier of San Diego gravely wounded in a parking lot in the 4400 block of Convoy Street at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, according to San Diego police.
Paramedics took Manier to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Detectives have determined that the victim and the assailant -- who remained unidentified and at large Tuesday afternoon -- were in a gathering of people at a restaurant and bar when they got into a quarrel that led to the deadly stabbing outside the establishment, Lt. Steve Shebloski said.
It was unclear what prompted the fight between the two men.
