Stabbing incident indicates possible gang activity

On Aug. 11, around 2 a.m. the Davis Police Department responded to reports of a large fight at 2033 F Street. While the DPD were responding, additional callers reported gunshots near the area. Upon arrival, the DPD discovered a male victim who had been stabbed.

“During the course of the investigation, it was determined that a party within the complex had become out of control and a large fight erupted among its guests. During that fight, the victim was stabbed and suffered major injuries,” said a press release by the DPD.

The press release also said that witnesses observed a male subject with a gun but there is no evidence to indicate that shots were fired. Additionally, while DPD officers were on scene, the DPD was notified that a second victim was stabbed and was driven to a local hospital.

The investigation is ongoing and the DPD said there are a few indicators this may be a gang related incident. Anyone who has information should contact the DPD at 530-747-5400.
