By Mario Conde

The Calexico Police Department is currently investigating the case of a homicide and attempted homicide that happened Tuesday morning.

Last Tuesday at about 9:36 a.m. the Calexico Police Department responded to a 911 call in the 1000 block of F. Torres Street in Calexico. The 911 Dispatcher could only hear faint sounds of a woman crying on the other end of the call as stated in a press release by the Calexico Police Department.

Police Department units responded to the residence and found a shirtless male jumping on top of a vehicle in the driveway, yelling. The shirtless male failed to respond to police commands and ultimately was subdued by use of a Taser. The subject was found to be in possession of a large knife.

A safety check of the residence found two females and an infant located in different areas of the house. One female, along with an infant, was found in an upstairs room with multiple stab wounds, the other female was found in the garage with major trauma to the head.

Both females were transported to El Centro Regional Hospital. A short time later, the female recovered from the garage was declared deceased from her injuries. The other female is reported to be in serious condition.

Jose Antonio Cisneros, age 31, was arrested at the scene and is being held for investigation at this time.
