Investigators say a Fresno County Sheriff's Deputy shot and killed a suspect after being threatened with a knife.
Witnesses say this could be a case of suicide by cop because the suspect was heard yelling at the officer to kill him.
The family friend targeted in the suspects' initial attack told KSEE 24 news, after 7 months of sobriety, Alejandro Garcia started drinking again and became preoccupied with ending his own life.
The woman says Garcia came by her home in the Mayfair area of Fresno County on Tuesday and threatened her with a knife.
When Garcia came back Wednesday afternoon and broke her windows she alerted sheriff's deputies right away.
While on the phone with dispatch, the woman followed the Garcia to the area of Recreation and Clay in East Central Fresno.
Deputies took over and engaged quickly in a confrontation with the suspect when he refused to surrender.
Investigators and witnesses say Garcia lunged at the deputy with a knife leaving the officer no other choice but to shoot.
At around 2:15 Wednesday afternoon, Garcia was taken to Community Regional Medical Center where he died.
