One suspect dies and another suspect is injured during officer-involved shooting incident, according to Fontana P.D. | News

One suspect died and another suspect was injured during an incident involving shots fired by an officer and a lengthy chase on local highways on June 21, according to a press release issued by the Fontana Police Department.

No officers were injured during the incident.

Around 5:15 p.m., officers were conducting a covert operation in connection with the sale of illegal assault weapons near the Jack in the Box restaurant located at 3910 Sierra Avenue on the northern tip of Fontana.

Officers attempted to contact two subjects, both adult males, in a vehicle parked in the restaurant parking lot.

As officers approached, wearing clearly marked police vests, the driver of the vehicle allegedly crashed into an unmarked police unit and a shot from the officer occurred, police said.

The driver of the vehicle left the parking lot and was put in pursuit.

The chase passed through several cities and eventually closed at Interstate 10 in Tennessee Road in the Redlands, causing a major traffic jam that lasted for hours.

The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody and the passenger was found with a firearm wound. The passenger was transported to the local hospital and later found dead. The driver received medical treatment and was later charged with several felonies, police said.

An unregistered assault rifle was placed inside the suspected vehicle, police said.

The name of the deceased is being kept pending positive identification and notification of relatives.

The driver was identified as 27-year-old Adolfo Quintana from Fontana. Quintana is a convicted felon after his release on various charges of drugs and firearms, police said.

The investigation into this incident is being conducted by the California Department of Justice and detectives from the Special Investigation Division of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and the San Bernardino County Attorney’s Office.
