RIALTO (CBSLA) — Police officers opened fire on a man who they say rammed into a fence and a patrol vehicle with his truck in Rialto.

A domestic disturbance was reported at about 1:30 a.m. at a home in the 1700 block of Sycamore Street in Rialto. When officers arrived, they found a man tearing up the front yard of his relatives’ yard with a truck, police said.

A portion of fence was left in the street from the truck ramming it.

Police say the man then turned the truck on the officers, ramming one patrol into a neighboring home and busting a water and gas pipe.

The officers opened fire on the truck, leaving as many as eight bullet holes in the windshield, before a K9 was deployed. The 53-year-old Rialto man, identified as David Gonzales, did not have a weapon, but is believed to have been under the influence.

Gonzales was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No officers were injured.
