Corona PD officers responded to a call regarding a domestic violence dispute with reports of shots fired at a home just after 8:30 p.m. The initial call was soon followed by an additional call of domestic violence involving an injured female and a male suspect who was possibly armed with a rifle.

Based on the circumstances, officers from around the city converged on the scene. Officials brought with them an armored tactical rescue vehicle, which officers eventually positioned in the driveway outside the residence where the incident and shots fired had been reported.

After surrounding the residence and closing down the neighborhood, officers began communications with the alleged suspect, at which time an officer involved shooting occurred, Corona PD Sgt. Chad Fountain later reported.

The alleged suspect succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased, and officers recovered a rifle at the scene, according to Fountain.

Medical personnel were eventually able to treat the woman involved in the initially reported shooting and determined she had “injuries consistent with gunshot wounds,” said Fountain. She was rushed to an area hospital, where she remains in critical condition. Officials have not specified how or when the woman received her injuries.

No officers were injured during the incident, which is still under investigation.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is encouraged to immediately contact Senior Detective Mario Hernandez at 951-279-3659 or by email. Callers can refer to incident file number 18-11329 and can remain anonymous.
