Apple Valley Shooting Leads to Arrest, Suspect Held on $2 Million Bail

APPLE VALLEY, Calif. ( — A 44-year-old Apple Valley man remains in jail on a $2 million bail after he shot another man Tuesday night.

On May 14, 2024, at about 9:33 pm, Apple Valley deputies responded to a 911 call about a shooting at a residence in the 14300 block of Jicarilla Road.

Deputy W. Ray and Deputy B. Almazan arrived on scene and contacted the suspect, Humberto Cueto, in the front yard where he was apprehended without incident.
