Protected & Served


It’s a good thing that old women nearing a century on this earth have some one to protect them when they hear a bump in the night.

A 91-year-old woman who was allegedly armed with a shotgun and shot by deputies outside her Spring Valley Lake home Saturday morning succumbed to her injuries Monday morning, authorities said.

NO, she wasn’t a criminal, she was the one they were coming to help. They protected the shit out of her.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Jodi Miller said Betty Francois was pronounced dead at the hospital at 6:15 a.m.

In a statement Monday morning, Sheriff’s officials originally said Francois remained hospitalized after being airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton.

Francois was shot after deputies responded to a 911 call just after 9:30 a.m. Saturday regarding “unknown subjects attempting to break into” a home in the 17800 block of Sunburst Road.

Miller confirmed Monday evening that Francois made the 911 call. Sheriff’s officials said deputies arrived and Francois allegedly exited the home armed with a shotgun. Good job boys.

“Deputies gave her commands to drop the gun, then she pointed the gun at the deputies, and a deputy-involved shooting occurred,” sheriff’s officials said.

C’mon man! they had to get it on!

Detectives from the Sheriff’s Specialized Investigations Division arrived on scene and assumed the investigation.

When asked how many rounds deputies fired at Francois, Miller said that was not being released due to the ongoing investigation. That means a lot.
