Lonnie Burke, age 85 of Roseville, died yesterday (Wednesday, May 7) at Sutter Roseville Medical Center from injuries suffered in a stabbing the previous day. His son, Patrick Allen Burke, age 55, has been arrested on suspicion of murdering his father and the attempted murder of a peace officer.
At 6:20 a.m. Tuesday, May 6, Roseville Police and Roseville Fire personnel responded to a home in the 1100 block of Windermere Avenue, to a report that a man had just stabbed his elderly father. When the first officer arrived on scene, he encountered Patrick Burke outside the residence, armed with a large knife. The suspect attempted to attack the officer, and the officer, fearing for his life, shot the suspect. Additional officers arrived on scene, and found the 85-year-old victim down inside the residence, suffering from multiple stab wounds.
