Barricade Suspect Fatally Shoots Himself After Standoff In Corona
CORONA (CBSLA.com) — Police in Corona say a man who barricaded himself inside a home after he reportedly ran through the streets trying to shoot a female acquaintance, took his own life Saturday.
According to authorities, police received several calls after 10:35 a.m. about shots being fired in the vicinity of Ingram Drive and Norgate Circle.
Witnesses told police they saw a man allegedly firing shots at a woman who was fleeing on foot. The unidentified woman was able to make it to a neighbor’s home without injury.
Officials said the man returned to his home in the 5000 block of Ingram Street and refused to come out.
The man’s relationship to the woman is unclear.
A SWAT team was called but authorities said they were unable to make contact with the alleged shooter.
Corona SWAT, along with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, made entry into the residence hours later and found the suspect dead as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The man’s name is being withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
