SALT LAKE CITY — A man is now in surgery after he was stabbed 7 to 8 times according to Lt. Dave Cracroft at Salt Lake City Police.

It happened at 1332 S. State Street in front of a business just before 1:30 Thursday morning.

Police say the man got in a fight with four black men, all of which were wearing red. After the suspects left him for dead, witnesses found the victim and called Salt Lake City Police.

Police do not believe this was a random stabbing and think it is gang related. They are waiting on the man to get out of surgery before asking him any questions.
