California Deputies Kill Man Attacking Them with Hammer

November 16, 2015  | 

A man was fatally shot by sheriff’s deputies after he refused to put down a hammer and charged at them, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department stated Sunday.

Deputies with the Jurupa Valley Station responded to a report of unknown trouble inside a business in the 2900 block of Rubidoux Boulevard around 10 a.m. Saturday, according to a department news release.

A man armed with a hammer was then contacted, and deputies used a Taser on him after he refused to drop the weapon.

The Taser was ineffective, and the man charged toward the deputies who then opened fire, KTLA TV reports.

Glad to see the officers are ok, and that only the suspect is dead.
