The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 40-year-old McKinleyville man on suspicion of murder Saturday in connection with the death of a man who was apparently stabbed during an altercation.

According to a press release, deputies were called to the 1100 block of Boss Road just after midnight Saturday on a report of a disturbance and found an unresponsive male on the sidewalk.

The man, whose identity has not been released, was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Brian Leiteritz was later arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of murder.

“Deputies were familiar with the residence, and some of the involved individuals, as there have been repeated calls for service at that location in the recent past,” the release states.

Few other details were immediately available and the investigation is ongoing, according to HCSO.
