The man shot to death by Desert Hot Springs police after they said he pointed a gun at them was identified by the Riverside County Coroner’s Office on Thursday, Dec. 28, as Robo Raikoglo, 30, of Menifee.

Raikoglo was previously identified by police as being from Hemet.

Police said they were called to the 13400 block of Cielo Azul Way at 9:15 p.m. Tuesday after a report of shots being fired due to a domestic disturbance. A woman said she had been assaulted by her partner, who fired multiple shots at her before leaving, a news release said.

The suspect returned to the residence while police were interviewing the victim. After officers identified themselves, the man leaned out his vehicle window and aimed a gun at them, the release said.

Riverside County Superior Court records list 10 aliases for Raikoglo, most including variations in the spelling of his last name, a first name of Robert and a middle name of Bunny.

Raikoglo had convictions for felony criminal threats, resisting arrest, being a felon in possession of a stun gun, being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a leaded cane (such as a billy or blackjack), driving under the influence, grand theft, receiving stolen property and grand theft auto.
