Deputies assigned to Eastvale Police Station were dispatched to reports of “shots being fired” in the neighborhood shortly after 8 p.m.

When deputies arrived they found a woman deceased in the roadway, according to Mendez. Sheriff’s officials later identified the victim in a social media release as 28-year-old, Eastvale resident, Alicia Rene Lopez. It was not immediately known if Lopez lived near where she was fatally shot.

“One adult male was seen running from the location after the shooting,” explained Mendez, who said no further information was available at this time.
