Man slain in another officer-involved shooting
DESERT EDGE – (INT) – The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department has been involved in the third, fatal, officer-involved shooting this month.
Early Sunday, a deputy responding to an assault in the Coachella Valley community of Desert Edge confronted a man beating a woman. When the individual displayed a knife and threatened to stab the woman, he was shot and wounded and died later at a local hospital.
The woman suffered non-life threatening injuries. No one else was hurt.
Earlier this month, a vandalism suspect throwing rocks at a deputy in Woodcrest was killed. And in Cabazon, another deputy shot a man described only as a ‘suspicious person’ following a foot chase.
