Man stabbed to death during fight with neighbor in central Fresno

A man was stabbed to death Wednesday night during a fight with his neighbor in central Fresno, police said.

Officers were called for a stabbing victim around 7 p.m. at the 2300 block of East Hampton Way, near Ashlan Avenue and Fresno Street, Lt. Bill Dooley said.

Officers found the victim lying on his driveway with multiple stab wounds to his upper torso. Officers and paramedics performed CPR on him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

He was identified Thursday by the Fresno County Coroner’s Office as Brian Hernandez, 54, of Fresno.

Dooley said the victim’s family told officers Hernandez and the neighbor were arguing when they began to fight, which led to the stabbing.

Dooley added the stabbing was the result of an ongoing dispute between the two neighbors.

It was not immediately known what the neighbor used to allegedly stab Hernandez.

One person was detained, but no arrests were made.
