Friday Night Stabbing In Carlsbad

by The Editors on March 28, 2011

When we heard the helicopter heading toward Barrio Carlsbad on Friday, March 25, 2011 around 11 PM we rolled through our list of previous coverage. Was it a shooting, a police chase, or a combination of the two. When one of our readers tweeted us later saying the helicopter had actually landed at Chase field we began to understand that it was serious.

As we all learned later, Devin Allen, a 27-year-old Oceanside resident, had been stabbed to death on the way to his car after leaving Hensley’s at around 10:40 PM, according to NBC San Diego. The stabbing occurred near the corner of Harding St. and Carol Place. Allen and his friends were walking back to their car when two men reportedly came up and asked if they any cigarettes then stabbed Allen in the abdomen.

According to the San Diego Union Tribune Allen was transported to Palomar Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Carlsbad Police are asking anyone with information to please call (760) 931-2115.

This is too hard to believe. I am a good friend of megan Allen ( devin’s younger sister) as well as ex girlfriend Jamie –lee this is hard to fathom due to the fact I’ve actually met been around and seen what kind of person he was and I honestly cant even pinpoint why someone would do sucha thing. he was kind hearted super laid back and from what I remember being at the house that day doing Jamie lee’s hair. I saw picture oater picture of his beautiful daughter Marley.. how is she going to get the devastating news and why would they take him from her. I don’t understand people and their cold hearts some times. My prayers go out Megan and her families morn over this loss may your should rest in peace
