Jesus Bernabe was stabbed to death during a fight Saturday night in the Douglas Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

About 9:10 p.m, the 29-year-old Bernabe was sitting with several other people in an alley in the 2600 block of West 15th Street, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Bernabe was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:55 p.m., authorities said. His home address was not known.

Area Central detectives were conducting a homicide investigation.
