From Ontario Daily Bulletin of May 20, 2006
Man shoots alleged robbers

Suspects called Ontario police to report a drive-by shooting

A man who was attacked by armed robbers outside a home Friday pulled out his own gun and shot both men, sheriff's deputies said.

The victim, who received a cut to his head in the attack, opened fire after the robbers shot at him and missed, said San Bernardino County sheriff's Sgt. Rick Swigart. The victim legally owns the firearm.

But investigators say it wasn't coincidence that the robbers chose this man as their victim.

"It wasn't random," said San Bernardino County sheriff's Sgt. Robert Guillen. "We believe the suspects were aware of the victim's business, and that's why they chose him as a target."

Deputies did not disclose the type of business the victim owns, only saying it is a mobile business that deals in cash.

His name was not released for his protection.
