1 Killed In Officer-Involved Shooting In Fontana

FONTANA (CBS) — Police say one person has been shot and killed in an officer-involved shooting in Fontana.

The suspect was fatally shot early Saturday morning following a pursuit that terminated in the 8100 block of Catawba.

According to authorities, officers were prompted to fire after the suspect attempted to use his car as a weapon against them.

The suspect’s vehicle was initially stopped by a Fontana police officer for a code violation, but a chase ensued when the suspect pulled out a knife and fled, authorities said.

Authorities are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

    Officers always use the ever-so-popular “car as a weapon” jargon as an excuse to empty the magazines of their guns. Their slogans should be changed to “serving your community but protecting ourselves by shooting non-violent people every now and then”.

      Good by $pic, obey the law and follow directions from law enforcement and you live to see another day. One $pic down and millions to go.

      Sure looks like they did a lot of brain damage or is that natural, dumba$$? Cops are overpaid a$$wipes but you’re two steps past stupid in comparison.

    lowlife mexicans good ridance

  • I support our Police Officers

    So tired of criminals getting sympathy. If this criminal would have killed anyone of you “police haters” families, you would not be singing the same tune. I love the comment, “He was just drunk”. I guess your implication is that when we are drunk we can go on high speed pursuits, endangering the lives of all, and use our cars to attack police officers? Do you realize how many people this criminal could have killed, had he not been stopped. Were the police officers simply to stand there and watch him ram into their patrol cars, who knows who he could have killed, bystanders, too, not just police? Should they have obliged him and moved their cars to let him through so he could have continued his criminal behavior and run over pedestrians, due to his intoxication? All those of you who complain about Police Officers are the first to call them when you’re in trouble. Tell us, who do you call when you or your family is in trouble? hm?? I don’t like when anyone dies, it’s always a tragedy, and I feel for his family, but, he had no one to blame but himself. Let’s all stop making excuses for these criminals. It doesn’t matter whether they are Hispanic, White, Asian, etc. A criminal is a criminal, no matter what race. Police Officers need more support. By the way, I am Mexican myself, and tired of all criminals, of all races endangering our lives!
