Victorville, CA – San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department reported an officer involved shooting Wednesday in the 13000 block of Cabazon Court in Victorville. Video shot at the scene shows suspect, 21-year-old Ari Young, fighting with Deputy Meagan Forsberg resulting in Young taking her firearm and firing at her and responding deputies.
The deputy was hospitalized but not struck by gunfire and expected to make a full recovery.
Forsberg responded to a home around 8AM when a reporting party called law enforcement repeatedly saying “My God, oh my God,” followed with “Send the police,” Sgt. Jeff Allison said.
Sheriff’s Department Officials say Forsberg found 21-year-old Ari Young outside the home, and he became combative with her.
The video depicts both Young and Deputy Forsberg go to the ground and struggle for the weapon, which Young got control of. Young stands up and fires at Forsberg who is running away away from him.
The shot is fired just as additional deputies are arriving on scene, and Young walks toward them, still armed.
The Sheriff’s Department says Young refused to drop the weapon . Around a dozen shots are heard before the video cuts off.
Officials have said Young’s wounds were not considered life-threatening.
