One adult suspect, Destin J-Brent 18 years of Eastvale, and one 15 year old juvenile were arrested and booked for residential burglary and conspiracy.
On December 23, 2017, around 1:37 p.m., deputies from the Jurupa Valley Station, assigned to the contract city of Eastvale, responded to a report of a burglary and shooting that just occurred in the 6400 block of Caxton Street, Eastvale. Deputies arrived on scene and met with the homeowner, an off-duty Pomona Police Officer. Two residents were inside the home, when they heard several subjects inside the home. The off-duty officer armed himself and confronted two suspects in an upstairs room, and an Officer Involved Shooting occurred. Deputies received information from the victims and neighbors who described the suspects as three black males, thin to medium build, who fled in a gray Hyundai.
