Deputies shot and wounded a 71-year-old man who sheriff’s officials say confronted them with a knife and a gun after shooting a woman at an Apple Valley home on Monday morning.

Thoren Vegsuin Rand of Apple Valley was hospitalized and arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following the violent encounter, which took place about 8:20 a.m. in the 15200 block of Pocahantas Street, according to San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department officials and booking records.

Deputies from the Sheriff’s Apple Valley Station responded to a report of an assault at the home when they were met by a 69-year-old woman suffering from “severe injuries,” the sheriff’s department said in a written statement.
