According to CBS News, who first reported the story, Stone was stabbed repeatedly. The incident happened outside of a bar at 21st and K Streets, CBS News reports. Stone reportedly suffered a wound to the heart and his left lung.
The owner of a A&P Liquors says he has video of the incident and it appears show five to six men in a group attacking someone in an intersection. Employee Ryan Romandia saw the video and says, “All you see is an altercation in the middle of the intersection…I don’t know how it started.”
The Sacramento Police Department confirms that an assault occurred at the location in midtown just before 1 a.m. and are investigating. They would not say who was injured and a suspect has not been identified.
