An armed suspect was shot to death by authorities after he allegedly charged at them during an incident in Rancho Cucamonga on Jan. 10, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.
Personnel from the Sheriff’s Specialized Enforcement Division were working in conjunction with U.S. Marshals personnel to locate and apprehend a suspect wanted for attempted murder in Grand Terrace. The suspect was located in a vehicle in a parking lot at Bass Pro Shops at 2:08 p.m.
The suspect initially refused to comply with commands to get out of the vehicle, the Sheriff's Department said. A less lethal round was deployed into the vehicle.
