Former NASCAR driver Bobby East was stabbed to death at a California gas station earlier this week. He was 37.
Police in Westminster, Calif., responded to reports of a stabbing Wednesday evening and found East with a serious wound to his chest area.
Officers attempted life-saving measures until paramedics transported East to a local trauma center, where he died.
East competed in 11 races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series from 2005-07 and in 31 races on NASCAR’s truck series from 2005-08.
East reportedly was pumping gas when he exchanged words with a man police identified as Trent William Millsap, 27.
According to a TMZ report on Saturday, Millsap was later shot and killed while police were attempting to arrest him.
