YUCAIPA, Calif.

Authorities responded to a domestic disturbance call on the 35000 block of Avenue B at 7:03 p.m. San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies say the shooting happened shortly after they arrived.

He allegedly fired the gun once, forcing deputies to open fire. Munoz was shot several times and was declared dead at the scene.

No deputies were injured in the incident.

Authorities say the shooting remains under investigation.
