2 Dead, 1 Injured In Botched Home Invasion Robbery

RIALTO (AP) — Police say a home invasion robbery in San Bernardino County has ended with a shootout that left two people dead — including a suspect — and one injured.

Rialto police say at least three gunmen entered a home on Beechwood Avenue at about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday but those inside grabbed guns and there was a shootout.

Police tell the San Bernardino Sun that one person inside was killed and a robbery suspect was shot and died in the street.

Another suspect was wounded. Police say he and others fled in a white van. During a chase, the van stopped to let off two men who are still at large.

The van finally was stopped by police who arrested the driver and the wounded passenger, who’s expected to survive his injuries.
