FONTANA – Officers from the Fontana Police Department made quick response to a call of “shots fired” during a fight on September 24th involving subjects in Jack Bulik Park (16581 Filbert St., Fontana).

Numerous dispatched officers made their arrival at approximately 5:30 PM, to determine that several subjects, believed to be known to one another, were embroiled in a physical altercation.

An escalation in the action took place when a large adult male subject brandished a handgun. One round that was fired towards the fighting participants resulted in a direct hit to an adult female.

As Detectives worked all night, three adult suspects were ID’d and arrested for various charges. Michelle Pacheco (36), Jocelyn Castro (25), and Robert Castro (19) were taken into custody, however the shooter was not.
