Police attempting to stop a robbery get involved in a shootout that left one man dead. The suspected robbers have San Gabriel Valley ties according to this story, which ran in Tuesday’s Daily Bulletin:
CHINO – An innocent bystander on Sunday was killed during a shootout involving police and two men who had attempted to rob a restaurant.
A Chino police officer and two suspects in the robbery were also hospitalized following the incident.
Police said Daniel Baledran, 21, of Rubidoux was shot to death by a police officer during the shootout near the Papa John’s restaurant on 12615 Central Avenue.
Baledran was in the immediate area of the restaurant when the shots were fired and was considered an “innocent victim,” said Michelle Van Der Linden, Chino public information officer.
Police officers initially thought Baledran was part of the robbery, but investigators later determined he was not.
On Monday evening, the suspects – Edward Cisneros of La Mirada and Joel Anthony Jaquez of Hacienda Heights, both about 28 years old – were in critical condition and awaiting surgery, Van Der Linden said.
