Deceased: Fabian Gutierrez, a Hispanic male, born 06/17/1994
On Sunday, October 8, 2017 at approximately 9:23 p.m., Austin police responded to a 911 call for someone who had been stabbed. Upon arrival, officers observed witnesses attempting to save Fabian Gutierrez who had obvious trauma to his body. EMS arrived shortly afterwards and transported Gutierrez to Saint David’s South Austin Medical Clinic where succumbed to his wounds and was pronounced at 9:52 p.m.
During the initial investigation, witnesses said they observed a physical disturbance in the parking lot of the complex between Gutierrez and two other men who may also have been Hispanic. The two males were observed driving away in a red Dodge Ram diesel truck which officers located and impounded a few hours later. Detectives, who believe the parties knew each other, are continuing to work to establish the motive and identities of the suspects.
The Travis County Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy later in the morning.
