A mother and her two children were stabbed and killed early Thursday morning in their home off Granger Court in Riverside.

Police were called shortly after 7 a.m. when an estranged boyfriend was seen speeding away from the house.

Inside the home, police found a 25-year-old woman, her 1-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son suffering multiple stab wounds and critically injured, Riverside police Lt. Guy Toussaint said.

The mother and two children were taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, where they all died from their injuries. Coroner’s officials were withholding their names pending notification of next of kin.

Detectives said the man appeared to be the father of the two children killed. He was never married to the woman and never lived at the home where the stabbing occurred.

The home sits off Pendleton Street, in a cul de sac near Tyler Avenue and Hole Street. The family lived with two other adults and a child who also rented the home, but were unharmed.

Other people inside the home gave a description of the vehicle to officers, who broadcast the information across police radios.

Corona police found the suspect, after witnesses called 911. He was described with a knife strapped to his back and his clothing covered in blood. He was seen walking away from a vehicle found abandoned on an overpass at the Interstate 15/Highway 91 interchange. Corona police chased him down to nearby railroad tracks where he was shot during a confrontation with officers. The suspect was hospitalized, but recovering from his injuries. He has not been identified. Police are not looking for any additional suspects.

The investigation stymied traffic along both Highway 91 and Interstate 15 during the morning rush hour, with officials issuing a SigAlert that was not lifted until about 10 a.m.

Metrolink commuter rail traffic was also affected by the closing of the North Main Street station, near the 15/91 interchange, and halting train traffic theough the area. Riverside Transit Agency and Orange County Transportation Authority buses ferried passengers between the La Sierra station in Riverside and the West Corona train stop.

Officers cordoned off the small block of Granger Court with police tape while a dozen detectives and Police Chief Sergio Diaz walked back and forth from the home. A Riverside police cruiser drove up to the home with two people in the back seat.

Neighbors described the neighborhood as usually quiet. They said they didn’t know the family, other than seeing them coming and going from the home.
