Inland cops battle gang members
INLAND EMPIRE--Cops continue to do battle with street gangs across the Inland region.
For two consecutive nights, gunfire has climaxed gang encounters in Ontario. One officer was wounded when Jonathan Valderrama, 27, opened fire during a traffic stop. Police shot back taking Valderrama into custody. Injuries to both men were non-life threatening.
Earlier, a gang member managed to gain control of an Ontario police car setting off a 100 mile-an-hour chase that ended in Montclair.
In Riverside County, a man killed in a shootout with sheriff’s deputies on the Soboba Indian Reservation has been identified. Eli Morillo, 26, was found dead next to his assault rifle. Two other men fled into the night.
