The Kern County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a Tuesday afternoon stabbing in the area of Foothill Road and Morning Drive that left one person dead and two injured.

There were two stabbing incidents involving three male victims, according to KCSO Detective Matt Alvarez. The stabbings took place near Foothill High School at 2:38 p.m.
