An investigation was underway Monday in a Clairemont residential neighborhood following the deadly stabbing of a 67-year-old man, allegedly by a relative, according to the San Diego Police Department.

The violence was reported at about 2:20 a.m. on Monday after police received a call of an injured person at a residence in the area of 5100 Bowden Avenue. As officers arrived to the scene, the call was updated to an “assault with a deadly weapon.” 

Upon arrival, police officers found the victim suffering from at least one stab wound to his upper body inside the home. They also found a man standing in a driveway with a bloody knife in hand who also had blood visible on his clothing.

SDPD Lt. Steve Shebloski said the case involves extended family members, but didn't specify how the victim and suspect are related. He added that several relatives witnessed the stabbing and called 911.

The man who was found with a knife in his hand was taken into custody by police. Authorities identified the individual as Raul Marquez, 28, and said sometimes Marquez stayed in the same home as the victim. There are no outstanding suspects.

Details on what led up to the stabbing were unclear. The victim is a resident of the home where the stabbing occurred. Police said the victim has been identified but his name is not being released at this time. 

The investigation is ongoing.
