2 suspects were arrested

BRIGHTON, Colo. - A dying man, covered in blood, told officers the names of the two who had stabbed him, police said.

Brighton Police Department spokesman Sgt. Mark Kohn said officers were sent to the Eastgate Mobile Home Park, located at 3060 East Bridge Street in Brighton, for a reported stabbing around 6 a.m. Thursday. Officers were told two men chased another behind a mobile home park while the victim was yelling for help, Kohn said.

Francisco Javier Moran,  22, was in Brighton with Hector Guadalupe Alvarez-Martinon, 18, and Alex Hernandez, 21, police said.  Alvarez is the uncle of Moran’s children, according to police.

The three males were driving around Brighton in a black, 2007 Cadillac Escalade, when Alvarez began stabbing Moran, police said.  Moran fled the Escalade and was chased through the mobile home park by Alvarez and Hernandez, according to police.  

At about 3:45 p.m., Hector Alvarez and Alex Hernandez were taken into custody and are being held for investigation of first-degree murder oat the Adams County Detention Facility, police said.

Alvarez and Hernandez are also from Denver.
