CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / TEMECULA
A woman was stabbed to death in a minivan parked outside a Temecula mall Thursday in what authorities believe is a case of domestic violence.
The attack happened about 1 p.m. at the Promenade Mall and was witnessed by a police officer patrolling the area.
Riverside County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Dennis Gutierrez said the officer reported seeing a man in a Toyota minivan on the third level of the mall parking garage stabbing a woman.
The suspect was ordered out of the car. When he refused he was shot with a Taser, Gutierrez said. The woman died at the scene. Her name is being withheld until her next of kin are notified.
