LOS MOLINOS, Calif. - A deputy with the Tehama County Sheriffs Office said they responded to the scene of a stabbing in Los Molinos. An elderly couple was found at the scene, the male victim was airlifted to Enloe Medical Center and the female was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Deputies said it happened on the morning of Saturday, May 23 at 7:45 a.m. when units responded to the 25100 block of Josephine Avenue in Los Molinos. 

Deputies said that upon arrival police encountered an elderly male victim who suffered a stab wound, the male was immediately life-flighted to a local hospital where he’s been rushed into emergency surgery

Police also located a second victim, an elderly female inside the home, police say that woman has died from a suspected stabbing wound to the torso. 

Police say next-of-kin have yet to be notified

Currently, the perimeter around the mobile home is taped off and police say there are no possible suspects or motives at this point

Tehama County Sheriff's Office is still processing the scene with assistance from the department of justice and bureau of forensic science

Police say it is too early to tell if this was a random incident, and they are still in the infancy stage of the investigation.

Police did not explicitly say if there’s any threat to the public but they’re encouraging the community to “do whatever they think would keep them safe if that means they need to lock their doors, be vigilant”

Police are asking the public if they’ve seen anything out of the ordinary in the area of Los Molinos to contact Major Crimes Unit at (530) 529-7920
