A young man found stabbed to death in Long Beach on Monday night has since been identified as 24-year-old Danny Calvin Logan, a local resident.

The Long Beach Press-Telegram reports that an LBPD officer happened upon Logan's body around 11:15 p.m. “in the far right lane of the Third Street on-ramp to the 710.”

At that time, he was still alive. However, by 3:20 a.m. on Wednesday morning…

… Logan had succumbed to his injuries. Within hours, friends started Tweeting their reactions to his sudden, early death:

Today, Twitter user @DMACC118, from Compton, explained to those asking what happened that Logan “beat a nigga ass so he stabbed him 17 times.” (The LBPD cannot confirm those details at this time.)

According to the police report, Logan made his way from the 710's Sixth Street off-ramp to the Third Street on-ramp between the time he was attacked and the time he was found:

On Monday, September 12, 2011, at approximately 11:15 p.m., a Long Beach police officer was traveling on the northbound 710 Freeway when he observed a male body lying in the #1 lane of northbound traffic, just north of the 3rd Street on-ramp. The officer immediately stopped to render aid to the victim and called for paramedics. The victim, who had sustained trauma to his body, was transported to a local hospital and listed in critical condition.

The subsequent investigation revealed that the male subject … had been the victim of an assault, and the crime scene was located on the bicycle path, below the 6th Street off-ramp of the southbound 710 Freeway.

Detectives Hugo Cortes and Peter Lackovic, who are heading the investigation, haven't nailed down a motive yet. If you have any more information about what happened, they can be reached at (562) 570-7244.
