HAYWARD -- Police have arrested two Hayward brothers and another 19-year-old man in connection to a fatal stabbing that took place early Saturday in a downtown city parking lot.

Daniel Ramirez, 29, and his brother Robert Ramirez, 27, along with Jose Vasquez, also of Hayward, were arrested on suspicion of murder, Sgt. Ken Forkus said Monday.

The killing took place in a city-owned lot behind Buffalo Bill's Brew Pub at 1082 B St. near Foothill Blvd., police said.

Officers were called to the scene at 12:22 a.m. and when they arrived they found a man in his 20s who had been stabbed. The man, whose identity is being withheld pending official identification by the Alameda County Coroner's Office, died at the scene, police said.

Officers determined that before the fatal stabbing the victim drove a car into the parking lot where he had been eating fast food before he came into contact with the Ramirez brothers and Vasquez.

Police believe three suspects had been barhopping that night and that, at some point, they came into contact with the victim in the parking lot. An argument erupted, police say, the men allegedly attacked the victim and then got in a car and sped off.

Several minutes later, dispatchers received a report about a single-vehicle crash on A Street at South Garden Avenue, about two miles from the city parking lot. There, officers said they found an abandoned Mercedes-Benz.

A short time later, two of the suspects showed up to a hospital with stab wounds, police said. Police believe the men had been in the Mercedes that crashed and that they flagged down another motorist to take them to the hospital.

The men, along with the third suspect, were later arrested and booked into jail where they were being held without bail on Monday.

All three of the suspects were slated to be arraigned Wednesday at the Hayward Hall of Justice.

The case remained under investigation on Monday.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to call police at 510-293-7034.
