A man in his 20s or early 30s and fatally stabbed was found outside a Santa Ana Walmart early Sunday, according to police.

A security guard making the rounds at the big box retailer in the 3600 block of West McFadden Avenue discovered the man near the loading docks around 2:40 a.m., reports the Santa Ana Police Department.

The fellow, who had been repeatedly stabbed in the upper torso, was rushed to UCI Medical Center in Orange, where the county coroner says he died at 4:54 a.m.

He has not yet been identified, no weapon was found and police have not released suspect information (if any). Homicide detectives are reportedly examining Walmart security video.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Santa Ana police detectives at 714.245.8390. Anonymous tips may be left with Orange County Crimestoppers at 855.847.6227.
