Three people were stabbed at a home in unincorporated Redwood City early Tuesday morning, with one of the victims dead, and the person suspected in the stabbing was found dead at the scene.
The incident, about which little is known as of this writing, occurred at around 5:20 a.m. Tuesday at a home on Sequoia Avenue in San Mateo County, just outside of Redwood City, east of Atherton. As KPIX reports, three adult victims were found stabbed in the home, one fatally — and the suspected perpetrator was someone known to the victims. That person was found dead as well, according to a San Mateo Sheriff's Office spokesperson.
Two victims were transported to an area hospital, according to NBC Bay Area.
Detective Rosemerry Blankswade gave a briefing on the incident in a Twitter video posted by the sheriff's office.
"The suspect was known to this family, and we are looking into a possible motive," she says.
