California police killed a suspect because a woman was fatally stabbed in a home that was reportedly owned by Ron Ely, a star of Tarzan television series in the 1960s.
Police found a woman's body on Tuesday evening while answering a "family disability" call.
After police investigated the suspect in the Santa Barbara area after the investigation, the authorities said he was a "threat".
Several police officers were shot dead and wounded.
The American media said that the house belongs to the Tarzan TV show, aired on the NBC between 1966-68 and 81 of the 1975 film Dr. Savage: Bronze's best-known actor, Ely.
According to police, a disabled elderly male resident was found in his residence and evacuated to a nearby hospital. CNN reported that this was the victim's husband.
The TMZ quoted police that the murdered victim was the wife of Eli, a former Florida Florida Valerie London (age 62).
This couple has Kirsten and Kaitland and son Cameron.
The Santa Barbara Sheriff's statement did not provide details of the names, relationships or motives of those involved in "active and ongoing criminal investigations."
All police officers involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave and released as well as the protocol for shooting.
Eli stopped acting between 2001-14 when he returned to the small screen to play Elder Amish in the lifetime film & # 39; Estimated Amish.
When the movie came out, he told Charlotte Observer: "I am able to raise my family and spend more time in Santa Barbara.
"Now every child is attending a college with a pre-degree. My family asked me & # 39; What do you want? & # 39;"
He was a novelist who played two action thrillers, Night Shadows, published in 1994 and East Beach, released a year later.
