APPLE VALLEY, California (VVNG.com) – The suspect in the attempted murder was arrested, but not before he shot at the deputies and the police helicopter while he was trying to escape from the scene.

It happened around 3:53 p.m., Thursday, May 12, 2022, at Paradise Mobile Home Park located at 24,000 blocks of State Highway 18 in Apple Valley.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Gloria Huerta said VVNG deputies responded to the attack that had just taken place at the site.

“When they arrived, they found the victim with a bullet wound and the victim was taken to hospital for treatment,” Huerta said.

Firefighters later requested an air ambulance to transport the victim to the trauma center.

A spokeswoman said lawmakers tried to contact the suspect, but he fled. “As he was fleeing, he shot at MPs and 40 Kings,” she said. (40 King is a helicopter belonging to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department)
