The Sacramento Police Department told ET that they received a call from a passerby that a subject had been stabbed, and he was located on scene and transported to an area hospital by fire personnel. It is believed that Stone was out with a group of friends when a physical altercation led to him being stabbed multiple times in his upper body.
