AUSTIN (KXAN) – Austin police say a fight between three men Sunday night ended with one man being stabbed to death.

Police say they responded to Griffis SoCo Austin Apartments in the 500 block of East Stassney Lane just east of Congress Avenue just before 9:30 p.m. for a disturbance in the parking lot. Witnesses told police the victim, identified as 23-year-old Fabian Gutierrez, was fighting with two other men when he was stabbed.

Gutierrez was taken to the hospital where he died from his injuries a short time later.

Witnesses say the two suspects drove away in a red Dodge Ram diesel truck, which officers located and impounded a few hours later. Detectives believe the victim and suspects knew each other but they’re still working to identify the suspects.
