Covina sees sixth killing in ’07

Correspondent Brian Day reports a man was stabbed to death behind a convalescent home in the 300 block of Rowland Street early Saturday morning. Thanks to Sgt. Dave Povero of the Covina PD very little else (beyond a written press release) is known about the case.
Here’s Brian’s story:
COVINA Police have identified an Azusa man who was killed in a stabbing Sunday that left another man seriously injured.
Paul Brizuela, 20, was pronounced dead at an area hospital shortly after the incident, Covina police Sgt. David Foster said Sunday in a written release.
Matthew Flores, 19, of West Covina was recovering from his injuries in serious but stable condition, Foster said. Both men suffered multiple stab wounds, he said.
The attack occurred just after midnight behind a convalescent home in the 300 block of West Rowland Street, police said.
No suspect description was available, and no motive was known, said Covina police Sgt. Dave Povero.
The investigation is ongoing, Povero added. Anyone with information should contact the Covina Police Department at (626) 858-4413.
I find it interesting that the homicide map for Covina indicates there have been four killings in this same neighborhood during 2007. That might be one of the highest per capita homicide rates in the San Gabriel Valley for the year.
