CA: After killing, man is shot by neighbor: "El Dorado County Sheriff's Department investigators said a man in his 30s, visiting the home of Vahid Seyedin, 47, suddenly turned violent, trying to slash his wrists with "a metal object," before grabbing a large kitchen knife and threatening others in the house. The residents fled for their lives into the street with the man, whose name is not being released, in close pursuit. In the intersection of Venezia Drive and Aria Court, the man caught his uncle, Ahmad Pazeky, 58, and stabbed him to death. The man also stabbed Seyedin, who rushed to Pazeky's aid, a sheriff's office press release said. Seyedin's next-door neighbor, Shahin Kohan, 47, was exercising in his garage when he saw the horrific scene unfold, investigators and witnesses said. Kohan retrieved a handgun, then ran to the street and yelled for the assailant to stop. A woman, who identified herself as Seyedin's wife but didn't want to give her first name, said Monday that the family was screaming for help. "Shoot him, he's killing us!" she said they were yelling. "Shoot him, he's killing us!" Kohan fired two warning shots before shooting the man once, a sheriff's press release said. After the man dropped the knife, efforts began to revive him and Pazeky, but "both subjects died on the scene," the press release said. Seyedin's wife, standing in her doorway Monday with tears in her eyes, said her husband was injured and Pazeky was killed trying to stop their relative. Seyedin's wife said the nephew had a history of "chemical imbalance" but had been doing fine the past several months. Kohan, the neighbor whose shot felled the knife-wielding man, was briefly detained on suspicion of murder but released following a review of the circumstances, the sheriff's office said."
