The Sparks Police Department says the stabbing suspect shot by Washoe County Deputies on February 4, has been released from the hospital and booked into jail. 

20-year-old Maurice Garcia is charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of battery with a deadly weapon on a peace officer and one count of resisting a public officer with the use of a dangerous weapon.

While responding to reports of a stabbing on the 500 block of Budger Way in Lemmon Valley on February 4, Washoe County Sheriff's Deputies found two people, a male and a female, with stab wounds. The suspect in the stabbing, 20-year-old Maurice Garcia, retreated into a residence and then came back out with a weapon, at which point deputies shot him. 

Garcia was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The victims in the stabbing were also treated at a local hospital and later released.

Sparks police say they recovered a black replica Beretta handgun, Air Model Firearms M190 Special Force 6mm Caliber BB gun and a knife believed to have been used in the stabbing.

The investigation is ongoing. Sparks police say at the conclusion of their investigation, the report will be turned over to the Washoe County District Attorney's Office for review.
