Suspects Brian Serrano and Jaime Rojas was apprehended while departing the crime scene in a vehicle. Rojas is currently receiving medical treatment for injuries and will be booked for Conspiracy to Attempted Murder upon release.
In a developing incident, Crestline, nestled in the picturesque San Bernardino mountains, witnessed a shooting early Wednesday morning that left one person wounded and led to the apprehension of two suspects. At approximately 2:30 a.m., reports of gunfire emerged from the Sleepy Hollow Inn, situated in the 24000 block of Lake Drive.
Law enforcement swiftly responded to the scene, discovering one individual with gunshot wounds who was promptly transported to a nearby hospital for urgent medical care. As investigations progress, the identity of the victim remains undisclosed. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department swiftly took action, leading to the arrest of two individuals, Brian Serrano and Jaime Rojas. Serrano, a 43-year-old resident of Sun City, was taken into custody on suspicion of attempted murder. Meanwhile, Rojas, aged 46 and a resident of Santa Ana, will face charges related to conspiracy to commit attempted murder once he recovers from unspecified injuries sustained during the incident.
While early reports indicated that two individuals had been shot at the scene, it remains unconfirmed whether Rojas’s injuries were inflicted by gunfire. Investigators are diligently working to piece together the events leading up to the shooting, including any possible altercations at the hotel. Initial social media reports suggested a barricaded subject inside the hotel, but subsequent investigations revealed that the room in question was unoccupied.
Community members, such as Crestline resident Lisa Scott, are closely following the unfolding situation with deep concern. Scott believes she may know the critically injured victim, although official confirmation is still pending. She described the victim as someone who stands up for justice, emphasizing that he is unlikely to stand idly by if someone is in danger on his premises.
