A crash in a Pomona intersection ended with a heavy barrage of police gunfire, wounding one person Sunday evening, authorities confirmed to KTLA.  

The incident unfolded at around 7:45 p.m. in the 600 block of West Holt Avenue, according to a news release from the Pomona Police Department.  

It’s unclear if officers were in pursuit at the time of the crash, but cellphone video captured police firing at a person after they say the suspect pointed a firearm at them.  

The wounded suspect could be seen raising a hand out of the car window before ultimately getting out of the vehicle and lying in the wreckage and shattered glass in the street as officers moved forward with guns drawn and took the person into custody.

Southern California skies light up with SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch

A SpaceX launch Sunday night lit up the Southern California skies.  

Liftoff of the Falcon 9 rocket at Vanderberg Space Force Base in Santa Barbara County happened just before 9 p.m., creating bright, pluming fiery streaks in the skies over the Southland shortly thereafter.  

The rocket was carrying 20 Starlink satellites, including 13 with Direct to Cell capabilities, to low-Earth orbit.  

Starlink is SpaceX’s satellite network designed to bring low-cost internet service to rural/remote communities.

After launching vertically, the Falcon began a gradual turn while continuing to climb into orbit. Following stage separation after liftoff, the Falcon’s reusable booster made a pinpoint landing back on the spaceport drone ship, “Of Course I Still Love You,” which is stationed in the Pacific Ocean. 

SpaceX said this is the 11th flight for the first-stage booster rocket.

Los Angeles domestic violence suspect found dead by police after standoff

An armed man accused of domestic violence was found dead following a lengthy standoff with Los Angeles Police on Thursday, the department confirmed.

Officers responded to a reported battery domestic violence situation around 10:30 a.m. Thursday in the 5700 block of Etiwanda Avenue, authorities say. The victim told arriving officers that her husband, 45-year-old Marlon Jimenez, had a history of domestic violence and that he was responsible for visible injuries on her body.

Jimenez was located in a bedroom inside the apartment. Officers directed him to step out of the room and into the hallway. When he complied, an officer firmly grabbed his arm and escorted him into the hallway, police said.

In the hallway police told Jimenez that he was going to be detained as the alleged domestic violence incident was investigated. That agitated Jimenez, authorities said, and he eventually retreated back to the bedroom and reached for the waistband of his pants, claiming he had a knife.

Jimenez then barricaded himself in the bedroom, police said. SWAT and Crisis Negotiation teams were then called to the scene.

After several hours, SWAT officers eventually entered the bedroom and found Jimenez faced down on the floor underneath a mattress. He had a ligature tied around his neck, according to authorities.

Police found a loaded 9mm handgun next to him on the ground. The registered firearm had previously been reported as stolen, police said.

No officers were injured during the incident.
