Residents of a quiet Home Gardens cul-de-sac were still in shock Wednesday, hours after Riverside County sheriff's deputies shot and killed a suspected drunken driver authorities say tried to ram a patrol car.

Yellow crime-scene tape remained up as investigators probed the scene of the shooting on April Drive and September Way for much of the day. Though the shooting took place about 11:40 p.m. Tuesday, residents of a half-dozen homes were still unable to get past the sheriff's barrier for the Wednesday morning commute.
