The melee started in the area of East Sycamore and North Pauline streets in Anaheim.

ORIGINAL POST, AUG. 22, 12:08 P.M.: A victim police described only as a male in his 20s was stabbed to death in an Anaheim street brawl early today that also resulted in the stabbing of a second person with the same police description.

It all started after midnight near the intersection of East Sycamore and North Pauline streets, where callers to police reported seeing as many as a dozen males and females fighting and someone being injured, according to Lt. Bob Dunn, the Anaheim Police spokesman.

Gunfire was also heard, but police could not confirm a shooting happened.

By 12:30 a.m., cops were told about a burgundy-colored SUV involved in the melee heading east on Sycamore. Two injured men and an SUV fitting that description were found about three blocks from the street brawl, Dunn said.

Officers performed CPR on the more seriously injured of the two and later had him taken to a nearby hospital, where he died from at least one stab wound, according to Dunn, who described the second man's stab wounds as non-life threatening.

Police are unsure what started the street brawl. It may have been gang related, according to Dunn, who adds that no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information can leave anonymous tips with Orange County Crime Stoppers at (855) 847-6227 (855-TIP-OCCS) or via occrimestoppers.org.

UPDATE, AUG. 25, 3:17 P.M.: The county coroner has identified the fatal stabbing victim as Diego Gutierrez Murillo, 20, of Anaheim.

Mexican gangs murdering people in my county. They say it is Anaheim? No. I call it ANA-CRIME. Violence is surrounding Orange County because Los Angeles decided to send all its unwanted trash to the O.C! (Mainly Illegal immigrants)
