California suspect killed 3 and set house on fire before being shot by cops
A person suspected of killing three people in a Southern California home before setting the house on fire was shot dead by sheriff’s deputies hours after the “demonic” crime.
Riverside Police responded to a social check at 11am Friday regarding a man and woman involved in a disturbance near a car in the El Sobrante neighborhood.
Shortly thereafter, dispatchers were switched to smoke and a possible fire at a two-story home at the same location.
Officials found three bodies inside but do not believe they died from smoke or the fire. The man and woman mentioned in the welfare check were gone.
Shortly before officers arrived, two people in trench coats and face coverings got out of a red car in front of the house and were involved in a disturbance, neighbors told police.
“Certainly someone went in by force,” Myron Dinga, a neighbor, told KTTV-TV. “When two people get out of a vehicle with trench coats and hats covering their faces, it’s a very demonic sign.”
The suspect in connection with the triple murder was killed by deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in Needles, Calif., department spokeswoman Gloria Huerta said.
The woman involved in the earlier disorder was later found in San Bernardino County and “safe” with law enforcement, ABC reported.
Officials are confident the three victims were murdered but have not disclosed the manner in which they were killed.
“This is appalling,” Riverside Police Officer Ryan Railsback told reporters on Friday. “It’s the day after Thanksgiving. We don’t know exactly what happened here, but we have three people who passed away.”
