A man was stabbed Friday morning and later died at a hospital, Kern County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ray Pruitt said.

The man was stabbed during a confrontation with his ex-girlfriend's current boyfriend at a home on Sugarloaf Lane in east Bakersfield, Pruitt said.

Family identified him to Eyewitness News as 52-year-old Brian Bland.

The Sheriff's Office spokesman wouldn't speculate on why Bland went to the home or what sparked the confrontation.

Pruitt said homicide detectives are looking for at least two people who left the home before deputies arrived.
