Officers from the same department got a call at 9:07 p.m. Sunday about a fight outside the Circle K at 710 Dyer Road escalating into a man being stabbed. Taken to a local hospital where he later died, the deceased has been identified as Jason Paul Torres, 40, of Costa Mesa.
We learned Tuesday that Santa Ana detectives quickly zeroed in on Cunningham as the suspect in the homicide.
Then on Monday, Long Beach police officers were sent to a residence on a domestic disturbance call, and while interviewing Cunningham it was learned he was possibly a suspect wanted in Santa Ana.
