At around 1:25 p.m. Lake Elsinore Station deputies were dispatched to a home in the 34600 block of Orange Street in the City of Wildomar. Deputies were advised that the suspect admitted to being in possession of a rifle, wanting to kill himself, and stated he was at the residence trying to make contact with the occupant, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Aviation Unit arrived overhead and located the suspect in possession of a rifle near the backhouse of the property trying to physically pry open the door of the residence, authorities said.
