DA Finds Fatal Officer-Involved Shooting in Fontana Legally Justified

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.  – The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office has completed its review of the fatal officer-involved shooting of 18-year-old Maneul Vizcarra of Bloomington by a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Detective on Aug. 30, 2012. The name of the detective has been withheld due to safety concerns.

 

Based on the facts presented in the reports and the applicable law, the Detective’s use of deadly force was a proper exercise of the Detective’s right of self-defense and therefore his actions were legally justified.

 

When a criminal case related to an Officer Involved Shooting incident is pending in court, the District Attorney’s Office withholds releasing the report until the case has been adjudicated. In this particular incident, 42-year-old Eric Robledo of Bloomington was sentenced to 22 years in state prison on Dec. 22, 2017 for his actions detailed within the report.
