City man dead after stabbing outside of Chambersburg bar
A city man is dead and another is facing murder and weapons charges, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said.
According to spokeswoman for the Prosecutor’s office, Casey DeBlasio, on Sunday morning police received a call for people fighting at Chapala II bar and grill on Morris Avenue around 1:13 a.m. When police arrived, DeBlasio said, they found the victim lying on the ground outside of the bar on Anderson Street in the city’s Chambersburg section.
The victim, Alberto Saquic, whom authorities believe is 21, died at Capital Health Regional Medical Center after he’d been stabbed in the chest. Authorities said the fight did not occur in the bar, but outside on the sidewalk. It’s not known exactly what sparked the confrontation, but police have arrested Ernier Pacheco, 18, in connection with the death.
