VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) - San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials have arrested a man who allegedly opened fire on a deputy conducting a traffic stop.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1bZBTF8 ) 31-year-old Shawn Munoz was arrested late Sunday in Victorville on suspicion of attempted murder.

Department officials say the deputy had pulled over a vehicle when he noticed a new Chrysler 300 driving toward him. Officials say the deputy saw muzzle flashes and heard four gunshots coming from the Chrysler.

The deputy fired back, and the Chrysler drove away. Officials say investigators found the car at a home several blocks away and obtained a search warrant for the residence.

The Times says investigators seized a .45 caliber handgun, ammunition, gang paraphernalia and a mini-14 rifle with two 30-round magazines.
