Fontana Man Shoots a Dog while Running from Police

FONTANA – A 28-year-old Fontana man was arrested for multiple felony offenses, including cruelty to animals after shooting a dog when fleeing from deputies on Sunday. Just before 7:00 p.m. deputies from the Fontana station were following up on a domestic violence incident in the 9400 block of Dracena Court. Deputies arrived at the location prepared to arrest the suspect, Moises Rodriguez.

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. Rodriguez was booked into the West Valley Detention Center for assault with a deadly weapon, negligent discharge of a firearm, felon in possession of a stolen loaded firearm and cruelty to animals. He is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail and is scheduled to appear at the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court Tuesday morning.
