The 26-year-old probationer and alleged gang member died at a hospital soon after the 3:19 p.m. incident Friday, Oct. 2, along the 200 block of South Linden Avenue, about 2 miles west of downtown Rialto.
Police went to the sprawling complex after the suspect's girlfriend made a 9-1-1 call reporting domestic violence, said Capt. Randy De Anda.
The suspect began struggling, prompting the officers to use a Taser on him, with no effect, De Anda said.
"The suspect reached for a knife, at which time the officers used deadly force," De Anda added.
