JURUPA VALLEY: Authorities investigating after 17-year-old fatally shot “multiple” times
JURUPA VALLEY — Authorities have released very few details after a teen died when he was shot “multiple” times, Friday evening, Aug. 25. The deadly shooting happened in the 6900 block of Adele Lane, northwest of Armstrong Road and east of Sierra Avenue, in Jurupa Valley, according to sheriff investigators.
Deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Jurupa Valley Station and other emergency first responders rushed to the scene about 9:48 p.m., after multiple 911 callers reported hearing shots fired in the area to Riverside County emergency communications dispatchers.
Some callers also reported an assault with a deadly weapon occurring in the area of Adele Lane, Riverside Sheriff’s Sergeant Jeff Buompensiero explained in a written press release after the incident.
When officials arrived at the scene, they found a “Hispanic male suffering from gunshot injuries,” said Buompensierro. According to medical personnel at the scene, the victim was in “grave condition” when authorities found him.
American Medical Response medics transported the victim to a local hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead by hospital staff.
Although officials have not identified the victim, according to family members interviewed at the scene, the victim was 17-years-old.
Based on the circumstances, investigators from the Jurupa Valley Station and Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit responded and assumed the investigation, which is active and ongoing.
During their investigation, officials designated a portion of Adele Lane a crime scene, cordoning off the area with crime scene tape. Adele Lane was re-opened to through traffic several hours later.
No suspects have been named or arrested.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Investigator Paz from the Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit at (951) 955-2195. Callers can refer to incident file number JV172370172 and can remain anonymous. Citizens may also submit a tip using the Sheriff’s Homicide Tipline online form.
