CHINO (CBSLA) — Chino police shot and wounded a man while serving a search warrant at his home Wednesday afternoon.

While executing the search warrant, one of the officers opened fire on the suspect inside the house, wounding him.

“It sounded like fireworks, I thought,” a woman who lives nearby told CBS2. “But then, shortly after, everyone raced in here and they started taping everything off.”

The suspect was taken to a hospital in unknown condition, police said. Another person inside the home was unharmed.

The exact circumstances that preceded the shooting were not confirmed. It’s unclear if the suspect was armed.

The neighbor told CBS2 she was shocked to learn of the alleged drug activity and the shooting.

“It’s super peaceful and quiet,” she said. “All of the neighbors are friendly.”

Per department protocol, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is investigating.
