At 1:45 a.m., Adrian Navarrete-Gonzalez called 911 to report that his son was dead. Officers arrived to find the child dead with stab wounds to his upper torso.
Emergency medical personnel transported Navarrete-Gonzalez to Ventura County Medical Center where he was rushed to surgery for a stab wound to the chest. He is expected to survive.
