A man was stabbed in the chest and died in Seattle's Belltown early Friday morning.

The victim, a man in his 20's, was attacked while walking with his girlfriend to his car after leaving a nearby bar. Detectives do not think the attack was random.

Seattle Police believe someone in the area may have witnessed the crime or captured images of it on cell phone video.

So far, there is only a vague description of the suspects, possibly four Hispanic males seen leaving the scene.

The incident began around 1:40 a.m. on the 2200 block of 1st Avenue, near Blanchard Street.

The victim and his girlfriend were leaving the area when police said he got into an argument with the four male suspects.

Police said the victim attempted to walk away to his car parked in a nearby parking lot. But sometime during the altercation, officers said he was stabbed in the chest.

Medics performed CPR and rushed the victim to the hospital, but the victim died as a result of his injuries.

Police believe the suspects got into a gray truck or SUV and fled north on 1st Avenue.

A red SUV was towed from the parking lot where the victim was stabbed. Police have not said how it might be connected.

At the time of the stabbing, police said a fight occured outside Tia Louis nightclub and that someone may have captured it on video. Anyone with information, pictures or video from the area when the stabbing occurred is asked to contact them: (206) 684-5550
