Officials Say Suspect In Killings Of 2 Palm Springs Officers Wore Armor

PALM SPRINGS (AP) — Authorities say the man suspected of fatally shooting two police officers in Palm Springs, emerged wearing soft body armor after police shot a chemical agent into the home where he was holed up for hours.

Chief Deputy Ray Wood of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department says John Felix was not carrying a gun but had several magazines of ammunition on his body when he exited through the back door early Sunday.

Wood says the 26-year-old was not cooperative and police shot him with non-lethal rounds before his arrest.

Prosecutors say Felix will be charged Tuesday with multiple counts including murder.

Two police officers responding to a family disturbance call were killed Saturday and a third was wounded but is expected to survive.
