SAN BERNADINO COUNTY, Calif. — Three sheriff's deputies acted in justifiable self-defense when they shot dead a 36-year-old San Bernardino man who was charging toward them with a knife in each hand despite having been Tasered, San Bernardino County district attorney officials said.

Casey Leslie Demorest died at the scene of the Aug. 21 confrontation at his home in the 1300 block of East Marshall Boulevard. The incident happened in the unincorporated Del Rosa section of San Bernardino.
