The man who was shot and killed by police early Sunday morning has been identified as Dexter Martin Dumarce, 33.

Dumarce died from four gunshot wounds, according to the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office.

According to a police news release, Dumarce was stopped in the area of Ninth Avenue and Adams Street, a “high crime area,” because he was acting “suspicious.”

Dumarce pulled a knife on the officers and fled on foot, according to a police news release. Police say they first used Tasers, which didn’t stop Dumarce.

1-15-17 Florida:

Manatee, Fla. Former college professor Hollant Maxford Adrien was acquainted with the 20-year-old man who detectives say rejected his sexual advances in a brutal attack, stabbing and then beating him to death with a hammer.

Barry Joshua Baer of Bradenton told detectives Friday, that Adrien, 56, had picked him up and driven him to the area of the intersection of 58th Avenue East and 21st Street East, a dead end in an industrial park, where Adrien’s body was later found, according to an arrest report.

“Baer stated that victim began to make sexual advances, which Baer rejected,” Manatee County Detective Ben Main, lead homicide investigator in the case, wrote in his report.

It was then when Baer said he took out a knife that he regularly carried for protection and stabbed Adrien in the neck. A physical struggle began outside of the vehicle, and Baer grabbed a hammer and struck Adrien 40 to 45 times in the head, the report said.
