Armed man shot by Rancho Cucamonga police after 5-hour standoff

A 28-year-old man was shot by at least one police officer after threatening  his neighbor with a rifle and then barricading himself in his Rancho Cucamonga home for nearly five hours.

Rancho Cucamonga police received a disturbance call about the suspect, Isaac Louis Soria, at about 2 p.m. on Friday, October 8th.  Once they got to the residence, located in the 11000 block of Carlow Court, they were informed that Soria had pointed a rifle at the neighbor before barricading himself inside his home.

Crisis negotiators worked for the next five hours in an attempt to persuade Soria to leave his residence.  During that time, evacuations took place in the Victoria Groves Park neighborhood and an elementary school located nearby.

Finally, at nearly 7 pm., Soria emerged—donning body armor and wielding the rifle.  At that point, at least one officer fired his weapon at the suspect.

Soria was given medical aid and taken to a local hospital, where he later died.

Police have not released further details about the shooting or Soria’s time of death.  The incident is being investigated by the Sheriff’s Specialized Investigations Division.

The Rancho Cucamonga Police Department has requested that anyone with information about the incident to contact Detective D. Carpenter, Specialized Investigations Division at (909) 387-3589 or to leave at anonymous tip at WeTip (800-78CRIME or www.wetip.com).
