Deputies from the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station were dispatched to the scene around 1 a.m., after receiving reports of a shooting, Riverside Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Brosche later reported.

When deputies arrived in the area they located two men who had sustained gunshot wounds sitting inside a vehicle.

“The first male succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced at the scene,” explained Brosche. “The second male was transported to a local hospital where he is expected to survive his wounds.”

The suspect(s) fled the scene prior to deputies arrival and are still outstanding, according to Brosche.

Based on the circumstances, Moreno Valley Station and Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit investigators were requested to the scene and and have assumed the investigation.

Neither of the victims of Friday’s shooting have been publicly identified, pending further investigation and notification of the deceased man’s family.
