Officers were called to a tire store in the 1400 block of South First St. for a car in the building. When they arrived they found the car inside the building with a man inside who had been stabbed multiple times.
The 21-year-old victim was taken to a Yakima hospital where he died. Police say he was likely stabbed in a parking lot on the west side of the street then drove across the street and into the building where he was found just after 1:00 a.m. Monday.

Gonzalez was last seen in the first week of October leaving Legends Casino with Garcia.
Deputies are also still actively looking for Garcia and Gonzalez today.
County Auditor Corky Holloway says this is an off-year election so she expects about 46 percent of ballots to be returned by election day. “I know the Secretary of State’s office is predicting a 51 percent turnout. We’re looking at about 46 percent but I’m hoping more people turn in ballots next week.”
While it is an off-year election Holloway says the ballot is still full of issues and candidate races including two city council races in Yakima and Proposition One, the tax limiting issue and Statewide initiatives.
Your ballot is due on Election day. You can either mail it in or place your ballot in a drop box on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in front of the Yakima County Courthouse.
