San Jacinto man murdered in Nuevo – Two arrested

NUEVO, Calif. — Authorities say a 61-year-old San Jacinto man was gunned down outside a popular business in the unincorporated area of Nuevo, east of Perris, Wednesday morning, Aug. 19.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the victim’s murder, which happened at the Nuevo Market inside the Nuevo Village shopping center on the 29600 block of Nuevo Rd., according to officials.

Deputies from the Perris Sheriff’s Station responded to the scene about 9:42 a.m., after receiving reports of an assault with a deadly weapon, according to Riverside Sheriff’s Sgt. Ben Ramirez.

“Deputies arrived within minutes and located an adult male with multiple gunshot wounds in front of a business,” said Ramirez. “Emergency medical personnel arrived and transported the victim to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.”

Deputies secured the shopping center’s parking lot as a crime scene and Perris Sheriff’s Station and Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit investigators responded and assumed the investigation.

Sheriff’s officials have since identified Abdallah Abushawish as the murdered man and have said the victim was an employee of the business where the shooting occurred.

As the shooting investigation was getting underway, deputies developed leads and gathered information regarding the possible suspects and began searching the area for the two men and their vehicle.

“At about 11:27 a.m., the suspect vehicle was located by deputies,” explained Ramirez; saying, “A felony traffic stop was conducted on Creekwood Ct. north of Mildred St.”

During that traffic stop deputies detained two men, since identified as Isaiah Ralph Lugo, 23, of Moreno Valley, and Charles Richard Trevino, 24, of Perris.

Based on their subsequent investigation, officials arrested both suspects and they were later booked into Cois Byrd Detention Center on suspicion of murder.

Online jail records indicate both men remain in custody in lieu of $1 million bail or bond and are scheduled to be arraigned at the Riverside Hall Of Justice Aug. 24.
