Ontario Police Department has released bodycam footage depicting the moment a probation officer had attacked her husband before shooting dead her two children and herself following an hours-long standoff.
Christine Robles was a San Bernardino County probation officer in December 2019 when she used her gun to attack her husband. The man survived his injuries to call 911.
He told dispatchers that his wife “was going crazy” at their 1300 block of East F Street and that “she has a gun.”
When officers responded to the scene, Robles started firing at them and getting wounded herself before sheltering at the back of her house with the two children.
A crisis response team was summoned to negotiate with Robles and save the lives of the innocent hostages throughout an unsuccessful standoff that lasted for hours.
When the officers made their way to the house, there were no signs of life. The bodies of the officer and her children were found with fatal gunshot wounds.
Robles had reportedly been assigned as a probation officer in San Bernardino County since 2011.
