1 Dead, 2 Injured in Stabbing Sunday

Per the Kern Golden Empire News, a stabbing early Sunday in Ridgecrest left a man with fatal injuries and two others hurt, the Kern County Sheriff’s office said.

Officers were dispatched to a residence at about 1:30 a.m. in the 1500 block of West Dolphin Avenue where a total of three victims were stabbed having to be rushed to Ridgecrest Regional Health Center, where one man ID’ed as Malik Mallett, 21, of Ridgecrest, later died of his injuries, a news release stated.

Ridgecrest Police officials were initially able to detain two men who were thought to have been involved but both were later released as authorities decided a more thorough investigation needed to be performed before any official arrests could be made, the report added.

According to Kern Golden Empire News, the investigation remains ongoing and the cause, manner, and identity of the deceased victim and injured parties will be unveiled later by the coroner’s office, the Sheriff’s Office said.


If someone is hurt or fatally injured following a confrontation or incident that took place within a residence of a home, there is liability that will fall upon the behalf of the home owner. There will be questions that will ultimately determine the outcome of pursuing a wrongful death or personal injury claim including for example in this case, why were the victims stabbed? Were there drugs and alcohol inside the home? Was the home owner present? Were there minors present inside the home? Each of these factors will be thoroughly examined and looked into to determine the outcome.

If you or a loved one have been involved in an incident with similar circumstances, do not hesitate to contact our experienced Kern County wrongful death and personal injury lawyers at 800-235-6801.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
