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.
