San Bernardino County deputies in standoff with suspect

San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies are in a standoff with a man who fled as deputies tried to approach him at a shopping center in Fontana, authorities said.

Deputies tried to make contact with the man, who is the subject of a criminal investigation, about 1:15 p.m. at Summit Plaza, said Sgt. Anthony Vega. As they approached, the man fled and a short vehicle pursuit ensued, Vega said.

The man drove to a residence in the 3700 block of American Elm Road in the community of Rosena Ranch, where he has been holed up since.

He is communicating with deputies and a SWAT team is on the scene, Vega said.

Deputies believe the home belongs to the man and no one else is believed to be inside, Vega said.
