Richi Briones, a 32-year-old male has been identified as a person of interest in at least two of the three stabbings under investigation. Briones was last seen driving an extremely damaged, tan, Toyota minivan. He is considered to be armed and dangerous after reports say he tried to purchase a shotgun in between attacks.

The first stabbing occurred at 9:30 AM at a convenience store, while the second happened around 10:15 AM just outside a restaurant. The third occurred at 10:50 AM at a convenience store and unfortunately the male victim did not survive his injuries.
