WHITTIER, Calif. (KABC) -- Los Angeles County sheriff's homicide detectives are looking for a man suspected of carrying out a deadly stabbing in unincorporated Whittier Saturday morning.

Deputies responded to a call of an assault with a knife in the 13500 block of Trumball Street at about 7:30 a.m. When they arrived, deputies found 43-year-old Tyrone Duran lying on the front lawn of a home suffering from a stab wound, authorities said in a news release.

Duran was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Witnesses told investigators that the victim and suspect, identified as 53-year-old George Delgado, knew each other and were hanging out in front of a home. The two men apparently started arguing over an ex-girlfriend, and then the suspect stabbed the victim with a folding knife, authorities said.

The weapon was recovered at the scene. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts was asked to contact the L.A. County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
