PERRIS — Although no arrests have been made following the deadly shooting of a man at a Perris park Wednesday evening, Feb. 12, officials say they have identified the alleged shooter and are actively searching for the parolee they described as armed and dangerous. The deadly shooting happened at Paragon Park at 264 Spectacular Bid St.

Wednesday’s shooting was the fourth violent incident in the Perris area over a ten day period to end with deaths or serious injuries. The four incidents happened within a seven mile radius and ended with the deaths of three people and three others suffering gunshot wounds.

The other three violent incidents include the deadly shooting of a Temecula man at a gas station on the 200 block of E. 4th St. on Sunday, Feb. 2; an assault that left one man dead and another injured at Menifee’s Eller Park – which is located just outside Perris city limits – one week later on Sunday, Feb. 9; and another that left three men with gunshot wounds in a residential neighborhood on the 1500 block of Ashbury Way on Tuesday, Feb. 11.
