Deadly Deputy-Involved Shooting Outside Rancho Cucamonga Bass Pro Shop

RANCHO CUCAMONGA (CBSLA) — A man was reported to be shot and killed by deputies with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department in front of the Bass Pro Shop in Rancho Cucamonga during a cross-agency operation Monday night.

The incident occurred around 2 p.m. Monday during a joint operation with the United States Marshalls in the 7700 block of Victoria Garden Lane in Rancho Cucamonga. The SBCSD confirmed that the person shot was the suspect both agencies were looking for.

Deputies have not yet publically identified the man but said he had an extensive criminal history.

According to the Sheriff's Department, the suspect was in the parking lot of the Bass Pro Shop when the joint task force confronted the man. He remained non-compliant with law enforcement. When law enforcement tried to put the suspect in custody, he lunged at a deputy with a knife.

"That suspect refused to exit the vehicle initially," said Mara Rodriguez with the SBCSD. "They continued speaking with him he finally did exit the vehicle. At that time he had a weapon in his hand and charged toward deputies."

The suspect died at the scene. No deputies were injured.
