One man died and a second one was injured in a Sunday night stabbing in San Jose's East Foothills neighborhood, said San Jose police, who late Sunday night were still working to identify suspects.

One of the men was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital a short time later, while the second victim was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The identity of the victim will be released by the Santa Clara County Coroner's Office after it confirms the victim's identity and notifies next of kin, Tepoorten said.

The homicide is San Jose's 12th of the year.
