Deputies say they got a 911 call Wednesday afternoon about a fight in the area of Brown's and Cold Springs Roads just north of Placerville.

A caller told them someone had been stabbed and was in cardiac arrest, and that the possible suspect had fled.

The victim, 20-year-old Matthew Steele of Auburn, later died at Marshall Hospital.

They say the possible suspect, 18-year-old Wesley Hampshire of Placerville, was later arrested and booked into El Dorado County Jail on one charge of murder.
