VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) – Deputies are searching for an armed suspect wanted for attempted murder after shooting at an occupied vehicle Sunday night.

On June 4, 2017, at 11:12 p.m. deputies from the Victorville Police Department responded to reports of gunshots heard near the 12400 block of Flagstone Court.

Upon arrival, deputies learned a fight erupted at a barbecue between family members and other attendees.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez said some of the subjects left the house, while others remained.

“A short time after the subjects left, several shots were fired from a vehicle on Flagstone Court,” stated Rodriguez.
