Rodriguez, who was armed with a firearm fled from police jumping over the back fence of the property to Live Oak Avenue. He continued on to Live Oak Avenue and Pine Street where he came in contact with deputies. Deputies told Rodriguez to stop but he pulled the gun from his waistband ignoring deputies commands.
When Rodriguez jumped a wall, deputies heard him fire a shot as he continued over several fences. Rodriguez was located hiding in the backyard of a home and was taken into custody. Deputies continued their investigation by searching the backyards that Rodriguez had been in while fleeing. During the search, they were able to locate a .40 caliber handgun with two magazines, which was reported stolen from Victorville.
Deputies also discovered that while fleeing, Rodriguez shot a dog.
