  • Investigators said a man was shot and killed in Moreno Valley and a woman was fatally shot at a gas station in Colton. Police confirmed the victim and shooter, identified as 38-year-old Jason Barton, of Moreno Valley, are related. Details regarding the relationship were not immediately available.

  • I’m replying I ran into this information while looking for information on the shooter Jason barton if he’s convicted of killing his father herbert barton and his shooting his sister,. We were never contacted by the detectives even though they took our information and statement as we witnessed everything and how all it went down. I’m just wondering if Jason barton had been convicted.
