Riverside County deputies fatally shot an armed man Monday during a probation compliance check at a home in Perris, officials say.

The incident happened around 8 a.m. at a home in the 3300 block of Albillo Loop as deputies assigned to the Riverside Alternative Sentencing Program were conducting a probation compliance check at the home.

They spoke to multiple individuals in the home's backyard and say one of them provided false information and tried to walk away from them, refusing their commands to stop.

The department says the deputies used a Taser, but it did not stop the man. He allegedly produced a handgun, and that's when at least one deputy opened fire.

The man was brought to a local hospital and later pronounced dead there.

A large crime scene was cordoned off near the home, and multiple investigators were at the scene all day.

Neighbors tell Eyewitness News they heard around 4–8 gunshots.

No deputies were injured.
