LAKE FOREST, Calif.—Orange County sheriff’s deputies wounded a man on Aug. 20 suspected of stabbing two people at a Lake Forest apartment complex, including one victim, who died.
The deputies were dispatched at 12:18 p.m. to an apartment complex in the 21000 block of Osterman Road to investigate a female suffering from stab wounds outside her apartment, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Department statement.
Deputies were directed to an apartment, where they confronted a man in his 20s and shot him at 12:32 p.m., sheriff’s officials said.
The deputies located a female victim inside the apartment suffering from several stab wounds, who was pronounced dead at the scene, sheriff’s officials said.
