SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A high-speed pursuit that started in Victorville ended with an officer-involved shooting on the I-210 freeway after the suspect exited the SUV and allegedly pointed a handgun at deputies, officials said.
On Wednesday, June 24, 2020, at 9:36 a.m., a deputy from the Victorville Police Department responded to the 13800 block of Ashmont Street following the report of a suspicious vehicle in the neighborhood.
According to a sheriff’s news release, when the deputy attempted to contact the driver, later determined to be 31-year-old Skyleur Young, he fled, and a pursuit ensued.
Young traveled through Victorville and eventually entered the southbound Interstate 15, traveling at a high rate of speed. The pursuit ended on the westbound 210 freeway, just west of the 215 interchange, after the vehicle spun out and came to rest facing the opposite direction.
