Twonn Alonzo McCoy
SAN BERNARDINO – A suspect in the shooting of a pregnant woman was arrested on Thursday, several days after she was shot in a carjacking attempt.
The victim, whose name has not been disclosed, will apparently survive the shooting by Twonn Alonzo McCoy, 28, of San Bernardino. He will face a court date this week in San Bernardino.
City police spokesman, Lt. Rich Lawhead, said detectives began investigating various leads, mostly from witnesses and surveillance videos from area businesses.
On Sunday night, May 29, at 8:22, the woman and McCoy were seated inside a car at the 1300 block of North F Street when he pulled out a gun and shot her.
McCoy fled the car, traveled on foot to a nearby gas station on Baseline Street where he robbed the business at gunpoint, taking an undetermined amount of cash. McCoy then carjacked a customer in the parking lot and fled in a 1998 black Jeep Cherokee.
While the pregnant woman was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition, expected to survive, police recovered the stolen car along the Interstate 10 freeway in Fontana.
Investigators later tracked McCoy to Chino, about 20 miles from San Bernardino, where he was arrested at 5353 G Street.
McCoy, who is being held at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, will be facing charges that include attempted murder, robbery and carjacking.
Held on $1 million bail, McCoy faces an appearance in San Bernardino Superior Court on June 6.
