Detectives are trying to determine what led to a fatal stabbing of a homeless man in downtown Santa Barbara.
Police officers were called to the 900 block of Santa Barbara Street just before 11 last night, by reports of a fight. They arrived to find a man with serious stab wounds in a parking lot between a church, and some businesses. The 57 year old man was pronounced dead about a half hour later.
Police aren’t identifying the man, but say while he was homeless, he was known to frequent the Santa Barbara area.
No arrests have been made, and detectives aren’t talking about what they think happened.
