SAN LEANDRO (KRON) — A homicide victim was found dead inside a home in San Leandro early Friday morning.

Officers responded to a unit in the apartment complex at 950 Juana Avenue around 5:30 a.m. after a neighbor reported that he heard a male calling for help.

According to KRON4’s Dan Kerman, San Leandro police say they received a call reporting a victim screaming for help – that he didn’t want to die.

When officers arrived at the apartment complex, a man who was covered in blood opened the door for them.

Officers detained the man and searched for a victim. Officers then found a victim inside, a man appearing to be in his 50’s, suffering from fatal wounds and pronounced dead at the scene.

The man who opened the door for the officers was arrested on suspicion of murder. Suspect was not injured and is being held in custody at the San Leandro Police Department, and will no be interviewed, according to police.

The suspect was later identified as the victim’s 21-year-old son.

Investigators are trying to figure out what led up to the stabbing and why it happened, according to police spokesman, Lt. Robert McManus.

The father lived at the apartment unit and the son spent a lot of time there but it’s unclear if he lived there full time, McManus said.

Police are withholding the names of the victim and the suspect yet because not all family members have yet to be notified of this fatal stabbing.
