The city of Seal Beach is to the west, Garden Grove is to the north and east, Huntington Beach is to the south, and Fountain Valley is to the east. Westminster is typically a very safe neighborhood.
Trent William Millsap, 27, was detained by police and accused of the crime. While East was filling up his car, Millsap is accused of stabbing him in the chest. Despite being transported to a local hospital, he was later declared dead.
According to a statement from the police, officers “tried life-saving measures until OCFA paramedics arrived and transferred the victim to a nearby trauma facility, where the victim succumbed to his injury.”
