Skyline North Elementary Principal & Family Arrested in Connection with Attempted Murder

BARSTOW, Calif. – The 21-year-old son of Barstow’s Skyline North Elementary School Principal was arrested for attempted murder as a result of a shooting earlier this month. In addition to his arrest, Jamie Fisher, his 46-year-old mother,  David Fisher, his 51-year-old father, Ben Fisher, his 20-year-old brother, and Darrien Elix, his 21-year-old friend, were all arrested for Accessory After the Fact.

On February 9, 2019, at around 1:20 a.m. police and fire received a call from Barstow Community Hospital regarding a patient that arrived at the emergency room with multiple gunshot wounds. At 1:25 a.m. a second report was made from a reporting party who said that a shooting had occurred at a business located on the 2300 block of East Main Street. Officers arrived at the location to secure the scene and collect evidence.

A Barstow detective went to the location to assume the investigation. Through investigation, it was learned that the male victim was shot while standing near the driver door of a dark-colored vehicle when he was shot. The victim’s girlfriend transported him to the hospital. Also, the investigation determined that the shooting was a result of a drug deal that went bad and that Isaac Fisher was the shooter. Isaac Fisher was living with his family on the 37000 block of Torres Avenue in the City of Barstow, at the time of the shooting.

A search warrant was served at the home at around 9:44 a.m. on February 14, 2019, when they made contact with Jamie Fisher, Ben Fisher, and David Fisher. During the search, illegal drugs and other evidence was collected. “Jamie, Ben, and David were all advised that Isaac Fisher is wanted for attempted murder and that if they harbored, concealed or aided Isaac Fisher in order to protect him from being arrested, that they would be subject to arrest,” Barstow Police officials said. An arrest warrant was issued for Isaac Fisher’s arrest.

Video evidence was obtained showing Ben Fisher dropping off clothes at a business in the 2100 block of West Main Street. It was learned that Ben Fisher dropped the clothing off with Darrien Elix.
“On February 20, 2019, Detective Helms obtained evidence that Elix had knowledge that Isaac Fisher had shot someone and that Elix provided Isaac Fisher with a ride to Las Vegas, Nevada to avoid law enforcement capture,” Barstow Police officials said. “On February 20, 2019, at about 1:32 p.m., Elix was arrested without incident for accessory after the fact.”

The detective went back to the home on the 37000 block of Torres Avenue after receiving information that Issac Fisher was at the home and had been for several days. On February 20, 2019, at 4:12 p.m. Isaac Fisher was located inside the home and arrested for attempted murder. Jamie Fisher, David Fisher, and Ben Fisher were all believed to know Isaac Fisher’s whereabouts and did not notify law enforcement. At around 4:15 p.m., Jamie Fisher was arrested at her home for accessory after the face. David Fisher arrived home from work at about 5:05 p.m. and was arrested without incident for accessory after the fact. After the arrests, a second search warrant was obtained and additional evidence was collected.

The following morning, Ben Fisher was located at the home and was interviewed by Detective Helms who learned that he knew that Isaac Fisher was at the home as early as February 19, 2019, and did not notify law enforcement. All suspects are being held in lieu of $1 million bail according to court records and are scheduled to appear at the Victorville Superior Court on Friday, February 22, 2019.
