After his arrest, Tyler Catlin Borg, 32, of Fontana, was booked into Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning on suspicion of first degree murder, Riverside Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Brosche said after Borg’s apprehension. Online jail records indicate Borg remains in custody and is being held without bail.

Deputies assigned to Jurupa Valley Police Station began investigating Saturday’s murder about 9:15 p.m., after receiving reports of a man who had been shot multiple times, according to Brosche.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found a man who was suffering from several gunshot wounds. The victim, who has not yet been publicly identified pending further investigation and notification of his family, was rushed to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased by hospital staff.

Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit and Jurupa Valley investigators assumed the investigation and quickly identified Borg as a suspect in the deadly shooting. Their investigation soon led to the Hemet residence where sheriff’s officials arrested Borg without incident. Hemet PD was on scene and assisted sheriff’s investigators with Borg’s arrest.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call Investigator Bishop of the Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit at (951) 955-2777. Callers can refer to incident file number JV183560146 and can remain anonymous. Citizens may also submit a tip using the Sheriff’s Homicide Tipline online form.
