Authorities on Wednesday identified the suspect killed in an officer-involved shooting in Laguna Niguel, an incident that began when three people, including a sheriff's deputy, were stabbed.
The suspect, identified by authorities as Connor Bishop Zion, 21, of Laguna Niguel, was pronounced dead at the scene after stabbing an Orange County sheriff's deputy in both arms and then being shot by another deputy, officials said.
The shooting occurred about 7:30 p.m. in the 200 block of Chandon, where deputies had responded to a disturbance call about someone being stabbed with a knife, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
Witnesses described a chaotic scene in a usually quiet area.
“We just heard some police come in with their tires screeching and everything, then we heard a little bit of yelling after that, and then a whole [magazine] go off of the bullets, one after another, nonstop,” resident Yobani Salas told KABC-TV.
