A man was fatally stabbed in San Jose late Sunday night, marking the city's 28th homicide of the year, police said.

Sgt. Enrique Garcia said officers went at about 9:25 p.m. Sunday to the 1500 block of Alum Rock Road, where several people had been involved in a fight on the sidewalk in front of a row of stores. They found a man suffering from at least on stab wound.

Witness Geovanny Torres told KTVU that he saw the stabbing victim run out of a bakery and toward a gas station -- he was holding a bag of bread.

When police arrived, they found the man suffering from the stab wounds and he was taken to a local hospital, where he died a short time later, Garcia said.

The motive and circumstances surrounding the stabbing are under investigation, said Garcia, who added that no suspects have been identified or apprehended.
