Man Shot In Back, Suspect in Custody After Standoff

PHELAN, Calif. (VVNG.com) Deputies responded to reports of shots fired referencing a man shot Wednesday night that led to an hour-long stand-off.

When authorities arrived on scene they located a 34-year-old man who had been shot in the back by a shotgun, per scanner traffic.

An airship was requested to fly out the victim to an undisclosed trauma center. The extent of injuries sustained by the victim is unknown at this time.

The incident occurred at approximately 4:45 p.m. on the 10700 of Relin Road at the intersection of Daisy Road.
