    Around 8:30 p.m., Oceanside Police were called to the Rodeway Inn at 1100 N. Coast Highway for a stabbing. NBC 7's Nicole Gonzales reports.

    Detectives say at that point several employees from a restaurant across the street as well as passersby held the suspect until officers arrived.

    One witness was legally carrying a gun, which compelled the suspect to stop his actions, according to police.

    The victim was pronounced dead at the scene officials said. The suspect was placed in custody and taken to a nearby police station.

    Officers are now looking at surveillance and trying to figure out a motive.
