Rancho Cucamonga High School sophomore gunned down at party: officials

A teenager was fatally shot in Bloomington early Tuesday, his father told KTLA.

Robert “Robbie” Plyley, 15, was a sophomore at Alta Loma High School in Rancho Cucamonga, school officials confirmed.

He was fatally shot around 2:30 a.m. in the 10,000 block of Geronimo Avenue, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

Authorities have released no additional information about what led to the shooting or who was involved. However, in a message to parents on Tuesday, Alta Loma High School principal Jason Kaylor said Plyley was shot while attending a party.

Neighbors who live on Geronimo Avenue say there were between 300 and 400 people on the block early Tuesday.

Guidance counselors, peer counselors and school therapists were scheduled to be in the campus auditorium on Tuesday to help grieving students.

“We are committed to supporting our students during this difficult time,” Kaylor said in the post. “Know that we will work closely with our students as we deal with this loss together as a school community.”

In a separate statement from the Chaffey Joint Union High School District, Superintendent Mathew Holton offered his condolences to Plyley’s family, friends, classmates and teachers.

“Robert was a wonderful young man, and his loss will be deeply felt by our entire school and district community. We are taking the necessary steps to support our students and staff and will assemble a team of counselors and therapists who will be available to provide additional support,” the statement read.

Another San Bernardino County high school student was fatally shot this weekend in Victorville.

Richard Reed, 17, was found on a street with a gunshot wound. Reed was a senior at Silverado High School who played on the school football team.
