Police are investigating the killing of a man who was stabbed to death after attending a party in southwest Miami-Dade over the weekend.

Alexander Restrepo, 33, was found lying on the grass near Southwest 147th Street and 157th Avenue with multiple stab wounds shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday, Miami-Dade Police said. Paramedics rushed him to Jackson Memorial Hospital South where he later died.

Detectives say Restrepo had been at a house party at a home down the block that about 60 or so people attended.

"They were at the party for an hour or so and when it was time for them to leave they were confronted at the door by a group of males, they exchanged words and Alex and friends continued to leave the area," Miami-Dade Police Det. Argemis Colome said.

They walked away but detectives say they were confronted a second time down the block, which led to a fight. Police say someone pulled out a sharp object and stabbed Restrepo repeatedly.

Police say they need leads to find the killer, and a $3,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
