Coroners ID Domestic Violence Suspect Killed by DHS Police

Posted: Updated:
Desert Hot Springs, CA -

The Riverside County Coroner's Bureau Friday released the name of a parolee shot to death by Desert Hot Springs officers after allegedly beating and trying to shoot his girlfriend.

Robo Raikoglo, 30, of Menifee, was shot several times just before 10 p.m. Tuesday after police say he pointed a handgun at approaching officers. Raikoglo was inside a car at a home in the 13400 block of Cielo Azul Way, when police say he leaned out of the vehicle and brandished the handgun, leading to the shooting.

Desert Hot Springs Police Chief Dale Mondary said the suspect's girlfriend ran to a neighbor's home at around 9:15 p.m. Tuesday and said her boyfriend of one month beat her and shot at her multiple times as she fled.

When officers first arrived, Raikoglo was gone. Mondary said it's believed that he drove off to search for the woman, then returned, pulling into the home's garage, at which point officers approached him.

None of the officers were injured in the shooting, which remains under investigation. Mondary called the incident a "completely self-defense justifiable shooting.''

The girlfriend sustained unspecified injuries and was treated at Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs. Mondary said she was released from the hospital early Wednesday morning.
