A man who was found stabbed to death in the parking lot of a Motel 6 in Carson Thursday morning may have been involved in an altercation, officials said.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide detectives responded to the 880 block of East Dominguez Street just before 8 a.m.

The victim, who was believed to have been in his late 20s, was declared dead at the scene. He had multiple wounds to his torso, Lt. Charles Calderaro said.

It is unclear when the stabbing occurred or how long the victim had been at the scene before being discovered. Calderaro said it appears the victim may have been a guest at the motel and was possible involved in an altercation. No arrests have been made and the lieutenant provided no suspect information.

The motel is near a large shopping area that includes an IKEA and a Target.

The investigation is ongoing and no further details about the investigation have been released.

Homicide detectives remained at the scene into the afternoon looking for evidence and possible witnesses. Anyone with information about the incident can call the sheriff’s department homicide bureau at 323-890-5500.
