Mom, 2 kids killed in Riverside stabbing; police shoot suspect
Riverside Police Lt. Guy Toussaint said the suspect was later shot in a confrontation with Corona police officers and taken to a hospital. The extent of his injuries were unknown.
“This is a domestic violence situation,” Toussaint said. “We do not believe the suspect and victim were legally married, but they were involved in a domestic relationship that we believe had ended.”
He said it was not yet clear whether the suspect was the father of the two children.
Toussaint said police were called about 6:50 a.m. to the home in the 10400 block of Granger Court on the west side of Riverside. They found three victims, an adult woman and two young children, one about 1 and the other about 4 years old, he said. All had been stabbed. They were taken to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
When police responded, a confrontation occurred, and the man was shot by officers.
The identities of the victims and the suspect have not been released.
