Police in Escondido say an officer involved shooting this morning happened when officers were investigating the apparent natural death of an elderly woman in a home east of Valley Parkway.
Police say they were called to the home of 70-year-old Elizabeth "Betty" Seitz who lived with her son, 40-year-old Damon Seitz. She was dead when officers arrived. Police say at some point, her son pulled out a gun and threatened one of the officers at the home on James Street where they lived. The officer fired three or four rounds at Damon, who was taken to a hospital, where he died.
Police say they got a call shortly before 7 o'clock this morning from someone reporting that a woman had died while “unattended."
