ROWLAND HEIGHTS (CBS) — Authorities Saturday said a man who was stabbing someone was fatally shot by a sheriff’s deputy in Rowland Heights.

Deputies responding to a report of an assault about 9:15 p.m. Friday at La Serena Apartments on Colima Road found the suspect stabbing someone, Sgt. Rob Blunt of the sheriff’s Walnut/Diamond Bar station said.

Deputies ordered the aggressor to drop the knife, but he continued stabbing the victim and was shot, Blunt said.

The names of the suspect, as well as the stabbing victim were not immediately released.

Blunt said the stabbing victim was hospitalized.

    Usage Note: An alleged burglar is someone who has been accused of being a burglar but against whom no charges have been proved. An alleged incident is an event that is said to have taken place but has not yet been verified. In their zeal to protect the rights of the accused, newspapers and law enforcement officials sometimes misuse alleged. Someone arrested for murder may be only an alleged murderer, for example, but is a real, not an alleged, suspect in that his or her status as a suspect is not in doubt. Similarly, if the money from a safe is known to have been stolen and not merely mislaid, then we may safely speak of a theft without having to qualify our description with alleged

    Sure seems like the perp was stabbing someone to me. Did the deputy shoot the perp or did he allegedly shoot him?
