Suspect injured after deputy-involved shooting in Palm Desert home off Highway 74

A suspect was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries after a deputy-involved shooting occurred early Sunday morning in Palm Desert.

Deputies first received reports of a burglary along the 49000 block of State Highway 74 at 2:45 a.m. Sunday.

The residents who called the police said they were hiding in a bedroom but could hear someone inside their home.

Deputies arrived, detected an unsecured door and proceeded to enter the home. There they found and detained one subject.

Moments later a second suspect appeared from a back room with a knife. The suspect refused to drop the knife, ignoring orders resulting in a deputy-involved shooting.

The first suspect was later taken to the station for questioning and later released.
