    San Jose police begin the weekend investigating two separate homcides.  They are homicides No. 23 and possibly homicide No. 24 of the year.

    Early Saturday morning a man was stabbed to death on a city street. Police released few details on the case that happened around 1 a.m. on the 300 block of Inidan Boom Drive in South San Jose.  Police said the death is ruled as suspicious, but not considered a homicide at this point, Officer Albert Morales said Saturday. The man was found with visible injuries and was pronounced dead at 2:12 a.m.  It is possible the death was a suicide. 

    The victim is reportedly an Asian man.

    Seven hours earlier a man was killed in a apparent family dispute in a neighborhood near Highway 17 and Interstate 280.

    At around 5:15 p.m., police responded to a report of a fight in the courtyard of an apartment building in the 2900 block of Huff Drive.

    When they arrived, they found Daniel Torres, 50, of San Jose suffering from injuries sustained in a physical fight, according to San Jose Police Public Information Officer Albert Morales.

    Torres was taken to the hospital and died a few hours later.

     Police believe an argument between Torres and his relative, Thomas Thompson, 40, of San Jose turned physical, allegedly resulting in the fatal injuries to Torres. Thompson (pictured) was booked into Santa Clara County jail on suspicion of murder. This was San Jose's 23rd reported homicide this year.
