A Santa Rosa man was in custody early Monday, suspected of using a butcher knife to stab another man in the stomach during a confrontation at a west Santa Rosa apartment complex, police reported.

Late Sunday night, officers arrested Ignacio Moran Kick, 24, for the stabbing and for acting as a gang member, Sgt. Steve Fraga reported.

Police officers went to the Monte Vista Apartment complex at about 4 a.m. Sunday after getting calls about gunfire and a fight.

They found Geno Cairo, 21, of San Francisco, with a large stomach wound collapsed in front of the complex.

He underwent emergency surgery at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital and Sunday was in critical condition but expected to live. Cairo had come to Santa Rosa to visit a cousin who lives at the complex.

Cairo apparently had been confronted in a parking lot by a group of suspected gang members and then was stabbed, Fraga said. The wounded man had made his way to the front of the residential area before falling to the ground.

Gang and violent crime detectives spent Sunday interviewing witnesses and searching two apartments in the complex, one related to the stabbing and one to the report of shots fired, Fraga said.

Detectives found evidence in one apartment linking Kick, a resident there, to the stabbing. He was arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide and two gang enhancements.

Officers also determined multiple shots had been fired at the complex just prior to the stabbing. No one reportedly was injured.

The stabbing was related to the gunfire, said Fraga, who released no further details. On Sunday, Fraga indicated Cairo wasn’t believed to have been involved in the gunfire and that he wasn’t a gang member.
