Man stabbed to death in El Cajon

EL CAJON (CNS) – An investigation was underway Thursday into the death of a man found in an El Cajon hotel room suffering from a stab wound, police said.

Someone called 911 about 7:15 p.m. Wednesday and reported there was possibly a fight going on at the Villa Embasadora Hotel at 1556 E. Main St., and a man was bleeding and had become unresponsive, according to El Cajon police Lt. Frank La Haye.

Arriving officers found the victim in a room with a stab wound, La Haye said. He was taken to a hospital to be treated, but later died. His name was withheld pending family notification. The man was around 28 years old, police said.
