According to sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller, the shooting happened just after 10 a.m. when two court services deputies were about to serve an eviction notice in the 1400 block of East Date Street in San Bernardino.

"The deputies were in two different marked sheriff’s units, they had not exited their vehicle when a suspect vehicle pulled up and fired at the one sheriff’s unit," she said in a telephone interview.
