A marine from Placer County has been killed in San Diego.

21-year-old Ryan Harris was stabbed to death Friday while trying to stop a fight-- on the streets of San Diego.

Heartbroken over the loss of their son, grandson, brother and hero, the family of Lance Corporal Ryan Harris hold on to memories to get them through.

"Ryan was the all American kid. If you had a son, you would want one like Ryan,” said Larry W. Holt, grandfather of Harris.

Harris, just 21 years old, a Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton was killed early Friday morning after an altercation on the streets of San Diego.

Exact details are still under investigation, but the family says Harris was attempting to intervene in a fight when he was stabbed.

He died from his injuries and the suspect is still on the run.

Harris was a talented baseball player, playing in high school for Rio Linda and East Nicolaus and in several leagues in San Diego.

The family says they're grateful Ryan was able to make it home for one last Christmas this past week.
