An off-duty Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy was shot and killed Wednesday on a golf course by Fontana Police Officers.
The incident began around 4 p.m. in the area of the Sierra Lakes Golf Club in Fontana when authorities received a 911 call from a woman saying her husband had fired a gun at a wall inside their home, according to the Fontana Police Department.
The man was said to be distraught and drinking before allegedly firing the shots, KTLA reports.
A caller then reported the man left the home and headed to the golf course carrying a gun. Authorities initially said the man was armed with two guns.
Fontana police officers responded to the golf course and confronted the man. Officers gave verbal commands before firing at the suspect, authorities said without elaborating.
