Posted: Updated:

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, and he is still currently under medical care. The victims in the stabbing were also treated at a local hospital and later released.

Since Washoe County Sheriff's Deputies were involved in the shooting, the Sparks Police Department has taken over the investigation as part of Regional Officer Involved Shooting Protocol.
