cain-able-1341328049_bOn Sunday, June 30, 2013, at approximately 4:17 a.m., deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call regarding a suicidal subject at a residence in the 13200 block of Crossroads Ct., in the city of Victorville.
Upon arriving on scene, deputies conducted a protective sweep of the residence. While checking the residence, deputies located a deceased male, Ladetric Jenkins, inside the location. Deputies also located a second deceased male, Dennis Jenkins, within the residence. Both males appeared to have died from gunshot wounds.

Detectives from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Detail responded to the scene and are conducting an investigation. Throughout the course of the investigation, investigators learned both deceased males were siblings. It is apparent that an argument occurred between Ladetric and Dennis Jenkins. It is believed sometime during the argument, Ladetric Jenkins shot Dennis Jenkins to death; then turned the gun on himself, committing suicide.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Mauricio Hurtado or Sergeant Trevis Newport of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Detail – (909) 387-3589
