BUENA PARK – One man was killed and another is in critical condition after stabbings at an apartment complex Monday night that police believe to be gang-related, authorities said.

The altercation was reported in the 6000 block of Fullerton Avenue just after 10:30 p.m., Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi said.

 Paramedics arrived at the apartment complex to find two men with critical injuries, he said, including one who went into full cardiac arrest.

Firefighters received the call as a possible shooting but found the men injured with what appeared to be stab wounds, Concialdi said.

Daniel Antonio Herrera, 25, of Buena Park was pronounced dead at 11:21 p.m. at UCI Medical Center in Orange, Buena Park police Cpl. Andy Luong said.

The other man was found on a lawn, just a few feet from the first man, Concialdi said. He was also taken to UCI Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition.

The men knew each other, but a motive for the stabbings was not immediately known, Luong said. Police don’t know what sparked the apparent confrontation, but believe it was gang-related.

About noon, detectives served a search warrant at a residence on Poinsettia Drive near Stanton Avenue.

Three males were detained, Luong said, and are being interviewed about the stabbings. No arrests have been reported.
