Arvin Police say two officers have shot and killed a domestic violence suspect who came at them with what they thought was a knife.

The officers were responding to a home on Wernli Court off South Commanche Drive early this [wed] morning when they say 26-year-old Richard Posadas of Bakersfield approached them and refused numerous commands to drop his weapon. The officers tazed him and when that didn’t work shot him multiple times.

The DA’s office is investigating.
