(TheConservativeTimes.org) – Multiple murder charges have been filed against a probation-bound California man who reportedly went on a shooting spree that killed his present and previous girlfriends in the counties of Riverside and San Bernardino.
According to police, on November 25th, a 41-year-old man named Louis Peter Hernandez III reportedly broke into a residence in Fontana, shot and murdered his fiancée, and then shot and killed someone else inside.
The San Bernadino County District Attorney’s office released a statement stating that Hernandez reportedly went to Riverside County and shot and murdered his former lover at the Mission Boulevard Park and Ride.
According to authorities, Hernandez was reportedly engaged in a confrontation with another person at the Mission Boulevard Park and Ride, who was shot several times. The case is still under investigation. The victim is recovering in the hospital.
According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), Hernandez then fled and jumped into a pickup truck stopped at a red light.
When the vehicle pulled into Ontario, Hernandez sprang out. Authorities in Ontario were notified when the driver dialed 911. The Central Highway Patrol reports that officers swiftly responded and apprehended the perpetrator.
According to the CHP, a pistol was discovered during Hernandez’s search, and authorities believed it was used in the shootings.
The identities of the victims were withheld.
The press release states that Hernandez was on post-release community supervision and probation when the shooting spree occurred. He is a convicted gang member with a lengthy record of violent crimes, including vehicle theft, assault with weapons, and eluding law enforcement.
According to authorities, Hernandez is facing many charges related to the four victims of the gunshots, including three counts of homicide and one act of assault using a weapon.
The trial could turn into a capital murder case since authorities have additionally lodged extraordinary accusations regarding past offenses and exceptional conditions.
Hernandez entered a not-guilty plea at his arraignment on November 29th and had no bail. The hearing will be held on December 4 at 8:30 a.m. at the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Courthouse.
