Banning Police Department will transition its communications system.

On Sept. 10 around 11:10 p.m., Banning Police was called regardinga possible shooting at a residence in the 1300 block of Almond Way in Banning.

Officers contacted multiple subjects who resided at the location, including a 54-year-old female who had sustained a gunshot wound.

The woman was treated on scene by emergency medical personnel and transported to a local trauma hospital in stable condition.

Banning patrol officers were able to determine that the victim had been shot by a family member who also resided at the location, during a domestic disturbance.

It was determined that 18-year-old Alex Signavong was responsible for the shooting, and he was arrested for several violations.

A firearm believed to have been used in the crime, along with several other items, including parts to convert the weapon into a fully automatic weapon, were recovered at the scene.

Signavong was later transported to the Larry Smith Correctional Facility, where he was booked for violation of two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of an unregistered firearm; as well as use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of parts to convert weapon into fully automatic weapon, in addition to being in violation of probation.
