SUSPECT #2:  Beth Ullom, 39-years-old, Resident of Rancho Cucamonga

Detectives from the Specialized Investigation Division – Homicide Detail continued their investigation over the past year.  Using multiple databases, they located information on a white Jeep they believed to be involved.  The Jeep was registered to Anthony Spennato and Beth Ullom, both residents of Rancho Cucamonga.  

Although the Jeep had been sold approximately two weeks after the incident, detectives located the Jeep and determined it was the same Jeep involved in the shooting.  

On Wednesday, April 27, 2022, Spennato and Ullom were interviewed, arrested, and booked in at the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino.  Spennato was arrested for murder with bail set at $1,000,000.  Ullom was arrested and held on $50,000 bail with a charge  of accessory to murder.

On Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 6:27 p.m. deputies responded to numerous calls of an unknown injury traffic collision on Church Street. Deputies arrived and found three vehicles involved and one driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. Deputies and medical aid believed the driver, Corey Cooper, had a gunshot injury and requested detectives from the Specialized Investigations Division to conduct the investigation.
Detectives determined Cooper had been shot nearby and lost control of his vehicle, causing him to veer into oncoming traffic and collide with two vehicles before coming to rest. Detectives are investigating the events that occurred prior to the collision and urge any witnesses to come forward.
The drivers of the involved vehicles were not injured in the collision.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone who witnessed the incident is urged to contact Detective Nicolas Craig, Specialized Investigations Division – Homicide Detail at (909)387-3589. Callers can remain anonymous and contact WeTip at 800-78CRIME or
