Shots Fired at Ski Resort, Husband, Wife Arrested

CRESTLINE – San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a husband and his wife, who fired gunshots into the air on Saturday in an effort to stop a fight.

Jennifer Magana, 31, fired four shots while her husband was involved in a fight with four people in the parking lot at Snow Valley, a mountain ski resort in the San Bernardino mountains.

Deputies arrested Anthony Christopher Magana, 37, and his wife were taken into custody following the incident, said deputy reports in a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department release.

The fight, which apparently started for unknown reasons, began shortly before 3 p.m. in the ski resort’s parking lot area.

When the fight into a physical altercation, Jennifer Magana went to their car, pulled out a gun and fired four shots into the air in what was described as an effort to stop the fight.

The Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station reacted to several emergency calls when the shots had been fired. When deputies, along with officers from the California Highway Patrol and San Bernardino National Forest Service responded, the incident was determined to be an active shooter situation.

Law enforcement officials said that Anthony Magana was the “aggressor” in the fight. He was booked into jail on charges of battery with serious bodily injury, later released at 2:04 a.m. Sunday morning on $100,000 bail.
No court appearance have yet to be scheduled.

His wife was not taken into custody, though a report was filed with the San Bernardino County District Attorney. She was cited for discharging a firearm.

There were no other arrests made, though the incident is still under investigation, according to the sheriff’s department.
