At 1:55 PM, Don Lugo High School was advised by the Chino Police Department to lock down due to activity south of the school, and lifted at 2:07 PM. Parents were notified through email, text messages, and phone calls by Principal Dr. Cabrera almost immediately after the lockdown took place.
Chino PD received a report of possible shots fired at T.J.Maxx™ at 4040 Grand Ave in the Chino Spectrum Marketplace. Sgt. Nancy Franklin from the Chino PD verified, “There was no weapon or shooting.” Chino PD reported that a male suspect had stolen a woman’s purse inside T.J.Maxx™, and an off-duty officer, unaffiliated with the Chino PD, chased the suspect into the 86 cafe where he was arrested shortly after.
Police later made contact with the suspect at a nearby restaurant across the street 0.4 miles from the T.J.Maxx™ store. The suspect was detained, and at 2 p.m. officers arrested 27-year-old, Carlos Rios.
