On Wednesday, June 5, 2018, at approximately 1:20 p.m., deputies from the Fontana Sheriff’s Station responded to the area near Slover Mountain High School in Bloomington after a reported fight involving several individuals.

At the conclusion of the operation and service of search warrants, Ray, Moore and Avinger were arrested for felony charges related to the attempted carjacking investigation. Deion Francisco and the 17-year-old male juvenile were arrested for possession of a loaded firearm, believed to be stolen from a residential burglary in the City of San Bernardino.
