ORIGINAL REPORT: EL PASO, Texas -- Detectives were investigating a late night stabbing in far east El Paso that left a man severely wounded.

El Paso police said it happened around 11:30 p.m. Friday at 1950 Joe Battle. That address is the El Mercado Plaza shopping complex, which includes a JC Penney department store along with other merchants.

Yellow crime scene tape was erected around a car in a parking lot behind the store as police gathered evidence into the early morning hours; that car was later impounded and towed away by authorities.

The stabbing victim was taken by ambulance to Del Sol Medical Center with what first-responders described as life-threatening injuries. Scanner traffic indicated the man had been stabbed multiple times.

Authorities had no further details to provide on the incident early Saturday.
