Snyder Man Shot After Threatening to Kill Girlfriend, Son, and Self
A Snyder man is dead after reportedly threatening to kill his girlfriend and child over the weekend.
Fifty-two year-old David Dale Rivera had threatened to kill the two, and then himself on Saturday morning, and officers in Snyder arrived to find him holding his one year-old son and a knife. He continued to threaten the child during communications with officers.
The standoff began just before 8 a.m., and ended with Rivera coming out of the house with a knife in each hand and charging at an officer. Rivera was shot before reaching the officer.
An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.
