As a San Bernardino police officer, Jose Jesus Perez had hopes of becoming a vice cop. He knew prostitutes who worked in the area, authorities say, and gave tips to fellow officers on how to conduct vice investigations. But on Thursday, prosecutors alleged Perez's interest in the subject was more than professional. He was arrested and charged with forcing two prostitutes to have sex with him while he was apparently on duty. "The charges in this case describe disgraceful abuses of police authority that simply cannot be tolerated in our society," U.S. Atty.

A teenage member of a Los Angeles-based street gang was arrested Wednesday on charges of firing a handgun at a porch full of family members in San Bernardino, killing a 3-year-old girl and seriously wounding a pregnant woman and her young daughter. Police say Monday's shooting appears to have been an act of revenge against a man who lived in the house who — an hour earlier — stopped the suspect from beating a woman on a sidewalk a few doors away. Investigators with the San Bernardino Police Department, aided by eyewitness accounts of the shooting, identified the suspect within 24 hours and the agency's gang unit tracked him down Wednesday evening, two blocks from the crime scene.

Five members of a Vietnamese family were found shot to death Thursday in a suburban neighborhood so dulled to the sound of gunfire that neighbors did not report the shots. The only survivor was a 3-year-old boy who apparently spent the night alone with his dead parents, two sisters and a brother, and related the death scene to his aunt who happened to call the home the next morning.
