A man was stabbed to death in Devore during a nine-hour concert featuring such hip-hop stars as Snoop Dogg, Warren G. and Ludracris, authorities said.

Paul Molina Jr., 29, of Huntington Park was found with wounds to his upper body Saturday in a bathroom on the grounds of the Hyundai Pavilion at Glen Helen Regional Park, said Cindy Beavers, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

Molina was pronounced dead at San Bernardino Community Hospital, officials said.

Beavers said she did not know the circumstances of the stabbing or whether anyone had been arrested.

"I have very little information because I've been unable to reach detectives," she said late Sunday.

Molina's death did not stop the concert, which was sponsored by Los Angeles radio station KPWR-FM, also known as Power 106, and featured rappers such as Lil' Jon and Nate Dogg.

Devore is about 55 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
