A carjacking and stabbing report led to a fatal shooting Friday morning that involved San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies in a Chino Hills neighborhood, according to the department.
The deputies responded to the 5800 block of Rushwood Court in southwestern San Bernardino County. Aerial video showed at least five sheriff's department vehicles at that location and more patrol vehicles on nearby Butterfield Ranch Road, where a crashed minivan was on the side of the road above an embankment.

Investigators said the initial report involved a stabbing at a nearby residence. The subject then ran from the house and carjacked a minivan before crashing the vehicle and running into a nearby house.
When he exited the house, he appeared to approach deputies with something in his hand before shots were fired, the witness said.
The man was carrying a knife and gun, according to investigators.
The man, identified as Jason Roy Wilson, 25, of Chino Hills, died at the scene, officials said.
Neighbors said they heard what sounded like rapid gunfire, then helicopters over the area.
Principal Rod Federwisch of nearby Butterfield Ranch Elementary school sent an emergency text message after the incident.
"There has been a reported shooting at Butterfield Ranch Road and Pine. All is fine and normal at the Ranch," read the text sent to parents.
Details regarding the condition of the stabbing victim were not immediately available.
