In an incident authorities are describing as a "bizarre," a California man was shot to death after crashing his car into a fast food eatery, stripping naked and stabbing an elderly man in another restaurant.
The incident occurred Sunday evening in Palmdale after the 29-year-old crashed his vehicle into a Carl's Jr., police say. After disrobing, the unidentified man grabbed a knife and ran to a McDonald's across the street. There, he stabbed an 88-year-old Hispanic man, authorities say.
A security guard who patrols the shopping complex saw what was going on and tried to coax the suspect out of the McDonald's, says security company owner Juan Paiz. "As [the officer] was backing out, the suspect then went after him with the knife," Paiz says. "Unfortunately, the security officer tripped while he was backing out of the restaurant." With the assailant on top of him, the guard pulled his gun and fired, Paiz added. The suspect died after being taken to a local hospital. The elderly man is listed in stable condition. The guard is "still shaken up," Paiz says.
