After the victim allegedly stabbed one of the men with a knife, all four suspects chased him to the gas station, where he was beaten, police said. He was pronounced dead at Parkview Community Hospital.

Arrested were Gregory Wilson, 22; Christine Cline, 19; and Suzanne Mapes, 18. A fourth suspect, Parker Smith, 21, was being treated at Parkview for knife wounds. He will be booked after he is discharged, police said. All four are from Riverside.
