When officers arrived, they saw the man standing outside Jack in the Box, said Sgt. Frank Preciado.He went back inside, where he was shot by police.
The man died at the scene. Police are still trying to identify him and determine the motive for the attacks, he said.
Two victims were found inside the restaurant and a third was found outside, Preciado said.
All three suffered stab wounds and were taken to hospitals. Two were listed in critical condition, police said, and the other had injuries described as "non-life-threatening."
