On Saturday, November 14th, 2020, approximately 2:58 AM, Jurupa Valley Station Deputies were dispatched to the 14000 Block of Alpaca Court, in the City of Eastvale, reference an unknown trouble. Shortly after deputies arrived on scene, they contacted an adult male who was armed with a weapon and threatening the deputies. While waiting for additional units to arrive on scene, the suspect shot multiple rounds at the deputies from the interior of a home. The deputies took cover behind their vehicles, and the suspect continued to shoot at the deputies. At this time, a deputy involved shooting occurred. An officer help call was broadcasted to multiple law enforcement agencies and Chino Police Department, Ontario Police Department, Corona Police Department and Riverside Police Department all responded. Corona Police Department and Ontario Police Department both arrived on scene with armored rescue vehicles and assisted in safely removing our deputies away from the suspects line of fire. Information was received that juveniles were in the home where the suspect was firing from. As an armored rescue vehicle was approaching the residence to safely remove the juveniles, the suspect appeared in the doorway and a second deputy involved shooting occurred.
The suspect, later identified as 43 year old Jose Alfredo Gonzalez, was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital for medical treatment of a non-life threatening injury. Three juveniles were removed from the home unharmed. Multiple weapons were located at the scene.
Suspect Gonzalez will be booked into jail for multiple counts of attempted murder on a Peace Officer, three counts of child endangerment, domestic violence and false imprisonment. (Booking photo is unavailable at this time)
The deputies involved will be placed on administrative leave per Department policy. The involved deputies’ names will not be released at this time.
